I have a really basic question. I am getting confused with the distinction between a web page (e.g., index.php) and the page defined in WordPress where you are discouraged from using it for a blog list. I want my users to see everything on the home page, but be able to go to other "pages" with "canned" searches that show posts satisfying two categories ( page 1 will show all posts with two categories set, page 2 will show all posts with two other categories set, etc.) Do I make duplicate php pages and tailor the php code in the loop or does this involve something different? I cannot see where I can select to display posts with two categories set on the home page.
Lots of posts refer to pages, but I am not sure if they mean a web page or a WordPress page.
