    Hello

    I come from desktop development background and just managed to install wordpress, can you please help me create the following:

    1)
    I need an articles page that will list all the articles subcategories in it, so say:
    articles.php:
    - cat 1
    - cat 2
    - cat 3
    The cat_n list is dynamic
    (please note that these so called categories and subcategories have special meaning within the "articles" page context)

    * Each subcategory, say cat1 will have the list of articles, so:
    main -> articles -> cat1 will have:
    - article 1
    - article 2

    2)
    I don't know how to have on the sidelinks the top pages listed and not their child pages, so on the side navigation page, there should be:
    - about page
    - articles
    - contact me
    etc...

    I hope you can assist me doing this by providing direct links and suggestions.

    I'm planning to write my experience after i finished my site in an article and share it with other beginners.

    All the best,
    Elias

    You could try to alter the code of this plugin a little here and there: http://www.dagondesign.com/articles/latest-post-from-each-category-plugin-for-wordpress/

    edit: This just answers your first question, the second question can be done with wp_list_pages("depth=-1"). For a deeper understanding see http://codex.wordpress.org/Template_Tags/wp_list_pages
