Semi-static pages (9 posts)

    hey there everyone. I'm having trouble trying to find the answer to this. I want to create semi-static pages. E.g. I want to make a Links page, and a Categories page, but want to use the codes to make the lists up.
    For some reason I'm having trouble. I'm using the http://www.asymptomatic.net/_wiki/EzStatic plugin, and I could get the body and things to work, but whenever I put the coding for the in, the lists do not show up. Can anyone help me? This is my coding...


    <div id="content">
    <img src="http://blog.ordinarylife.co.nz/wp-images/template/pole.jpg" border="0" align="left">

    <div class="post">
    <font color="#99ccff"><h3 class="storytitle">Categories</h3></font>

    <li id="categories">

    <UL>
    <?php wp_list_cats(); ?

  2. </div>

    I've tried all sorts of variations of this, but I can't make it happen! Thanks for reading this!

    HI you may find this a better solution:

    I assume you're using WP 1.2.2.

    I tried that tutorial, but I didn't really want to get into doing it myself... I do prefer plugins (coz I'm lazy, and that's what they're there for right?)

    Yeah I think I'm using that, or WP 1.3 mingus, but how do I find out? I've been trying to find out all morning!

    Thanks for the info though Jinsan!

    Oh, the other reason I wanted to do a plugin as opposed to a 'gut' is because I still wanted to be able to edit the index.php file, and all the static pages would change too. Means I don't have to trawl through all my statics to change one little thing every time I change something! Also makes it better if I want to change the template etc.

    Look at the bottom of the admin panel to see what version of WordPress you are currently running.

    Well that was dumb, because the version was right at the bottom! Talk about blind! Cheers NuclearMoose. I'm using v 1.2.1. Do I need to update?

    Have you got a url for the runphp plugin TG? I've done a search but can't seem to find it. Cheers heaps everybody!
