I have three parents categories - 1, 3, 18
under 3 i have about 10 sub-categories, under 1 is none
under 18 i have about 10 sub-categories..
here's what I want to do,
I want to show only categories 1, and 3 on main page
but on another page, i only want to show categories 18
i tried editing index.php of main and included $cat="1,3,-18" which did the job but shows entire posts under those two categories, I only want it to show maximum of 4 categories. (half success) is there anyway to limit the number of posts ?
then I tried editing index.php of other page, and put $cat="-1,-3,18" which did nothing, then tried $cat="-1,-3", did nothing either, $cat="18", works but shows entire posts again.
how do i limit number of posts shown ? I can limit them without $cat=" " line, but can't with it.
