    Newb here,

    I'm trying to display different categories of posts on different pages of my site, but without the categories listed on the sidebar (no user control). This way only news posts show up on index.php page, movie posts on media.php etc. Can this be done?

    Ok, so this would be my first plugin... and I have no idea how to implement this. My knowledge of PHP is rudimentary at best. I only need two categories displayed over 3 pages but I'm not sure what code to place in my template files.

    Why don't you just create custom page templates with loops for your categories. Using a plug-in like that would mean you have pages with just intro copy on them and no content!!!

    Looks like that plugin will only list the titles of the posts, not the content. driz's suggestion seems like a good approach.

    If you are not comfortable with coding your own template, tell me the theme you are using and I will see if I can code a short one for you. I also need the category names (exact spelling) that you use.
