Hi all, not sure if anyone will relate (or respond), but here goes:
I'm trying to set up an architecture that will allow a viewer to navigate from the "fixed" front page (yes, I know how to set this up in a variety of ways) to one of two different 'home' pages.
My idea is this - create home_biz.php and home_life.php, which use query_posts('cat=-3') and query_posts('cat=-6') respectively, just before the loop to prevent display of entries with the other category.
The concept is to allow a viewer to choose whether they are interested in browsing personal blog postings (cat3=home) or work blog postings (cat6=work), while preserving the independent use of other category tags, and allowing me to maintain just one blog on one WordPress installation.
Perhaps there is a better way to do this? Perhaps I should really just maintain two blogs? Perhaps I haven't sufficiently thought through the ramifications of this architecture when a user views a catagories page or an archive page? I'm open to suggestions, as I'd really like to get this right from the start! :)
