    My blogging topics covered a wide area, eg. my personal life, chinese cultures, web2.0 reviwes, photos.

    So, it's not wise to always display the contents under the same "blog" page(the front page) as people who come to my blog to read my web2.0 reviews are not interested in my personal life and vice versa.

    So, my plan to to make the front page(the usual page where the blog posts are displayed) into an announcement page, where announcement of new posts would be displayed, and probably a paragraph of the new posts too.

    Then on the navigation, there would be acccess to various topics. Is it possible in WordPress? And do I need to install multiple copies of wordpress to make this work? WordPress CMS can do this?

    Or just run a plugin to exclude some categories from the front page: http://ryowebsite.com/?p=46

    I've just come acreoss this post because I want to do something similar on my blog. Unfortunately, the plugin above is not yet compatible with WP 2.1.3.

    I want to include a page ("A") in my weblog that is actually shown in the top menu and in the sidebar navigation, so it acts like a normal WP-page.

    This page should only show posts of a specific category ("B") which - and here is the similarity - should not show up on the front page as well as its posts. But I want them to behave like normal posts when it comes to writing a post in the admin panel.

    The difference is: it should be a page, not only a link that directs to a category.

    I know that - with some manual template editing - I could exclude the posts of category "B" from the front page using The Loop and query_posts. From the sidebar menu, I could possibly use wp_list_categories() and exclude "B" from being listed.

    Then, I'd copy the main index template, alter it to just show posts of "B" and then use it as template for "A".

    I might also exclude the posts of "B" from the archive template.

    My question is:
    Does this sound like a reasonable plan, or would there be any problems using the slightly altered main index template for "A"?

    That could be done. Just check your header template if does some specific things depending on wether a page or the index is displayed.
