How to create a link that goes to my latest post in a category? (6 posts)

    I'd like to have a link on my homepage that links to the latest post in a particular category. So, I click the link and it takes me straight to the latest post. How do I do this?

    A plugin such as Special Recent Posts should let you place a widget on your homepage that displays selected posts.

    Hi, I have a graphic on my front page that the link would sit behind, so I would need a hyperlink, not a widget. Thanks.

    In that case, you could create a special template to display the post, assign that template to a Page, and use the page's permalink in the hyperlink.

    Here is a Codex article on Page Templates: http://codex.wordpress.org/Pages#Page_Templates

    The exact coding will depend on your theme. Providing the code for a template is beyond the scope of this forum. If you are not able to do the coding yourself, you may need to hire someone. You can post a job request at no charge on http://jobs.wordpress.net
