Want categories (tags) to be selected before blog text displayed (4 posts)

    I would like to have just a "blurb" on the main page, but not the actual blogs. I would like the reader to select a category, and then see the actual blog. Possible?

    1. Use the "more" tag (button) when writing a post.
    1a. Replace the_content tag in the index.php with the_excerpt.

    No, clicking on a category will NOT lead to a single post. It will show a listing of the posts in that category.

    The perma(nent)link to a single post - is usually the title of the post (or the "more" link).

    [and don't double post!]

    By "blurb" I meant something like "Choose a category to see the blogs on that topic." Not the excerpts you would see by using the "more" tag. Does answer 1a speak to that?

    OK, let's try to talk the same language.
    You have ONE blog = your WP install.
    You make posts (the entries in chronological order) that are in different categories.
    Blurb - in most of the cases is the same as excerpts.

    And upgrade: the latest stable in that branch is 2.0.10.

    Seemingly you want something as a "static home page", with a custom text.

    In the 2.2.x branch it can be done from within the admin panel. In the old system (2.0.x) it has to be done manually or by plugins.
