Problems with categories (3 posts)

    Hi there!
    I've been running wordpress for all of one day, and everything is fine and dandy apart from one hugely annoying niggle.
    I have two categories currently, the default (id 1) which I've renamed to "latest" and one named "linux" (id 5).
    When I try to post only in the "linux" category , no matter what I do it ends up displaying on the default (latest) AND linux category pages. Yet, when I look under "categories" it shows 0 posts for latest.
    I obviously want to put certain posts in certain categories and I'm wondering if I'm missing something obvious?
    This is really, really annoying and if anyone has any clues I'd much appreciate the help.
    Thanks, Jamie.

    Is "linux" a child (subcategory) to your default category? If so, that's why it shows up on the default category page. It needs to have no category parent to avoid being displayed under other categories.

    No, it's not and that's what's bugging me. It's set as "none". (although im purely trusting in the admin page saying so)
    ive created other categories now, and still the same thing. Everything appears on the default page as well.
    ARGH.
    :(
