I have created a static homepage for the wp site(home.php) and am trying to list 2 sets of category posts on the page in different places on the page but am having difficulties.
I have tried many combinations and loops but am getting errors when they are added together.
I have spent hours on this (trial and error)and I now give up and hope someone can help.
**in the first list of posts (not in the sidebar but in the content part for both)
I wish to list the latest 20 posts from category 1 only.
Description (read more...)
**in the second list of posts, I wish to list the latest 20 posts from all categories EXCEPT category 1. listed in the same fashion as the first request.
I have tried mainly using the loop thingy but come up baffled every time. There must be an easy way to call this in but I am truly baffled.
any help with this would be great.
PS: please do not direct me to a wp-tutorial page because I have seen them all but simply cannot figure it out.
Posting the actual code would be marvelous.
Thanks in advance.
