[resolved] Posts from a certain catergory(or catergories) listed (4 posts)

    I'm going to be using wordpress as a hybrid blog/cms and I'm going to be doing quite a bit of template hacking to get it looking how I've got it planned in my head.

    I'm more than competent with the html/css side of things but I'm a little stuck when it comes to the php side of things.

    Anyway, I'm looking for a way to list a set number of the latest posts from a set catergory (or catergories) on a page (any page) but am yet to find anything helpful after a few searches on here and google.

    Could anyone point me in the right direction?

    Also, read up on The_Loop a bit.

    Cheers for the links. I had looked at the_loop stuff in various cms related articles but miraculously never stumbled on that gold. Checking them out and experimenting now.

    How do I control the style of this? I have been able to get this plugin to work, but it spaces different posts too far apart? Is this controlled internally in my CSS file, or somewhere in the plugin file? Thanks.
