Ho do I create 'main post' and 'sub-post'? (5 posts)

    Hi,

    I am working on a multi-author blog. The hope is to have a weekly post that can then be discussed by the other contributors. So in essence I would like to be able to set up a 'main post' then have the following posts behave similar to comments, in that each 'sub-post' would appear beneath the 'main post'! I would also need to be able to order these 'sub-posts' from oldest to newest.

    Hopefully someone can help me with this!

    Regards
    Tristan

    How is this different from default comments?
    Have you tried using the default comment function?

    I want the full functions of a post (rather than the more restrictive comments functions)

    You could set up a new Custum Post Type, and set them to be hierarchical...

    I was having the same problem, and after much research I found a simple and easy solution: the InlinePost Plugin. Now I can add a bunch of posts (more exaclty excerpts from them) in a single post that I use as the HOME page (or HOME post, in this case). Readers see the HOME with the most recent posts from different categories.

    I hope this helps you.
