Link posts to different pages (4 posts)

    Hi,

    I need to link posts to specific pages. For example, the page titled 'AUDIO' would just feature a list of all the posts in the AUDIO category. Then the primary menu on the front page would feature the page titles.

    One commonly referenced method is changing the reading settings to a static front page and a posts page. This won't work for me as I need more than one posts page.

    Another commonly referenced method is to use the categories themselves and have these as the primary menu. This also won't work for me as I need to edit the pages and of course the categories would just be a basic list of posts.

    Can anybody help?

    Thanks

    Your best bet would be to find a shortcode plugin that lists posts within a category. Then, create a page and insert that shortcode.

    'another commonly referenced method' is the use of custom page templates;

    Thanks for the tips, really appreciate it.

    channeleaton - can you recommend a plugin that offers this functionality? I have found a couple but they are only able to list posts of a specific category in a sidebar, rather than turning an entire page into a feed for a specific category.
