Category Archive to Specific Page - how to? (2 posts)

    I have created a few categories (photos, poems, thoughts, videos) and pages for each of those categories. I am using the latest version of wordpress.

    What I would like to do is to to have all of the archived posts for a certain category appear on the page I have created for those categories, in chronological order (newest first), with the full posts, not just the post title listed.

    So for example, if I make a post of a photo, and check the photo category, that photo will appear on the photo page.

    What's the easiest way for me to accomplish this? I am obviously not very good with coiding or pho, so please be as specific as possible (ie: dumb it down for me!).

    I have searched here, but can't seem to find an answer. Is there a plugin or some feature in wordpress that I am overlooking?

    Thanks for your time.

    The natural archiving ability of WordPress will handle most of that.

    Just change to the WordPress Default Theme, and see what happens when you click on the Categories presented either under each post or in the Categories listed in the sidebar.

    Stepping Into Template Tags
    Stepping Into Templates
    Template Hierarchy
    the_content()
    the_excerpt()
