How to have specific categories show up on specific pages (4 posts)

    Hello WordPress community!

    I am trying to figure out how to have only blog posts from a single category show up on a single page.

    For example: I have the categories of teachers, trainers and front desk. In my header menu I have the drop down menu for Staff, where teachers, trainers and front desk all drop down as page options. What I would like to do is have it so when you click on any of these three drop down choices you are taken to an individual page, where only blog posts that are marked with that particular category show up.

    So far some of the plug ins I have experimented with only show the post name and a quick excerpt, but no photo.

    I would like it to show exactly how my "Blog" page shows, with the photo and description... but only for posts marked with a particular category.

    Add the category to a Custom Menu and then just create a custom Category Template based on your theme's category.php. This work should be done in a Child Theme.

    Thanks!

    The template I am using only supports one menu. Is your suggestion still possible?

    Also, I don't understand the Category Template FAQ at all. Is there a lame mans term version available somewhere?

    Actually, you could customize the theme to add menu areas, but that was not my thought. It was to use a custom menu (in place of the default theme provided menu).

    Admin Dashboard>Appearance>Menus>Create a Menu>Add to theme menu location.

    As far as the templates, they do require some basic PHP/HTML/CSS knowledge.
