    Hi,

    I just switched over to using WordPress from Joomla, and I have some questions about how to set up the overall hierarchy of the site. Basically, my client wants his front page to have snippets of two blogs: one blog for his observations about life, and one blog to post/discuss funny pictures he finds on the internet. I see that you can make posts for each blog entry, AND give each of them categories, but is there a way to make a specific Page show all the blog posts from a specific category? If so, how do you designate that?

    Also, I want the home page (which is including the blogs through iinclude) to only display the most recent blog post, and then have a link take the user to the rest of the posts. How do I do that?

    Thank you for any assistance!

    Okay, but more specifically to answering my question:

    how do you choose a page to list all the posts in a category?

    You might want to start with "The Loop": http://codex.wordpress.org/The_Loop

    Here are some more "advanced" loops: http://codex.wordpress.org/Template_Tags/query_posts

    And, finally, by category: http://nitzan.co.uk/the-wp-loop-via-category/
