    Hi guys,

    Is it possible to have separate news & blog sections with their own separate categories, tags, etc?

    Yes - if you use sub-categories & decide what tag(s) should be added where.

    Thanks Esmi!

    So if I use sub-categories, I can make the blog only display the posts within the parent category 'Blog' and the news only display posts within the parent category 'News'?

    Yes. The next trick will be to decide what will be displayed on your site's front page.

    Thanks again Esmi! :D

    So I could choose to show the News section only on the homepage?

    Yes but that would mean editing one of your theme's template file and adding a custom query.
