    What I would request?
    Post to Page Option via drop down menu

    I would like to be able to create a page, we'll say (as an example) News, when I want to write a News post I would like to see it on that News page only.

    PLEASE consider this option it would make our lives a lot easier .

    Thank You for you time!

  2. That would be done one of a few ways.

    1) Make a page called news and make a custom page template that calls every post you flag as news in Categories: http://codex.wordpress.org/Pages#Page_Templates

    2) Just use categories and let that sort it out naturally ;)

    3) Custom Post Types: http://codex.wordpress.org/Post_Types#Custom_Types

    This seem like a lot of work for someone that has never used wordPress ..
    Wouldn't be easier just to add this to an update?

  4. WordPress isn't a mind reader. It can't KNOW what you want unless you tell it. So yes, you have to work at it.

    There are options, none of them are particularly complicated (except #3 - CPTs are not for the novice). This way, you can do what you want, I can do what I want, and everyone has choices :)
