I recently discovered The FreePress Blog's Tagboard plugin. It looks great, and I'd love to use it. It sets up the tagboard as a static page, and then processes comments to the tagboard using the existing comment functionality in WordPress.
The problem I'm running into is that when someone submits a comment to the tagboard, it shows up in the list of recent comments. JB, the tagboard plugin author, has edited his own Recent Comments plugin so that it doesn't conflict with the tagboard; but I use, and like very much, Krischan's Recent Comment plugin, which shows both recent comments and trackbacks.
What I'm looking to do is make Krischan's recent comments plugin skip over the tagboard comments. Krischan has set up his plugin so that you can easily have it exclude certain categories in WP. So my first thought is that if I could associate the tagboard static page with a category, I could then exclude it from the list of recent comments.
So: is it possible to associate a WordPress static page with a category? Or do I need to go about this in a different way?
Thanks in advance for your help.
