how to show sub categories excerpts of specific parent category... (2 posts)

    K I've read through the searches I've done and I've read through the codex, but I'm a little stumped as how to get this to show up as I want.

    This is what I'm trying to do... each parent category has it's own "page" showing excerpts from the sub categories specified along with a link to the archives for that specific sub category only within the parent category.

    Design Elements (parent category)

    articles (sub category)
    sub category posts excerpts
    link to sub cateogry archives for parent category only not including posts listed above

    resources (sub category)
    sub category posts excerpts
    link to sub cateogry archives for parent category only not including posts listed above

    reviews (sub category)
    sub category posts excerpts
    link to sub cateogry archives for parent category only not including posts listed above

    tutorials (sub category)
    sub category posts excerpts
    link to sub cateogry archives for parent category only not including posts listed above

    I was thinking of doing this within a wp Page but after reading using a category.php file for each specific category seemed like the right way to go.

    Now my problem is how to show the excerpts for each of the sub categories within the parent category... how to link to the archives for the parent category within the sub category not including the posts already listed on this page. If that makes any sense :)

    here's a link to the code I'm working on...

    http://tina-stephen.com/category_designelements.txt

    How would I show the archives as I want them after someone has clicked the link to the archives? Would it be the code within the archives that I would have to manipulate? If so, how?

    Another thing... I'm not quite understanding how wp will bring up this "page". If I have a link to the design elements (parent category) within my sidebar will clicking on this link take you directly to the category_designelements.php page? or do I have to link directly to that page within the sidebar?

    Any help would be greatly appreciated. :)
