    I am using WordPress for a website I am building, however, it is not a blog. I disabled posting on the main page, nothing on the main page appears as a post. Now, late in the game, I decided to make a page with updates concerning the organization the website is for and would like to post messages in it, but I cannot seem to figure out how. If anybody has any ideas please let me know. Thank you.

    Perhaps I didn't make clear what I wish to do. I want to display posts of a certain category on a certain page without displaying them on the main page. I got a plugin called "show on front page." It does a good job of keeping posts off the front page but I can't figure out how to post them on the other page. Please advise. Thank you.

    example.com/?cat=XX
    where XX is the ID# of the "certain category" should do the job. You do NOT need any special Page for it - WP is smart enough to display only the posts belonging to that category, if a URI like above is called.

    But I want them on a special page. I have eight tabs at the top and I want all of them to have fixed content except one, I don't even need it to weed the posts out by category, just as long as it will show posts.

    What I decided to do was to redirect from the page I want the posts on to to the category page (/?cat=xx). There are still a few things I want to do though. I do not want the "Posted in..." and "Add a Comment" options to be listed at the bottom. I also need to know how to redirect from said page to the category page. Any info would be most appreciated. Thank you.
