    Hello everybody!

    I would like to add a new page via the "write/new page" option from the wordpress dashboard.

    Can I than let this newly made page show a certain categoriy id?

    For instance if I have the category "movies" has ne id = 21 - could I display than all post of the movie category?

    Thanks,
    Merry X-Mas and a happy new year!

    No. Pages are not for that.
    What you want is: http://codex.wordpress.org/Category_Templates

    My idea was to use the pages because if I create a new page it is immediately displayed at the top of my blog as a new link. So I thought if I create a new page (ie. called movies) than I have the "movies" link at the top of my site and I just have to let it show a category instead.

    Anyway how could I then let a link at the top of my page appear showing a category template?

    It can be done either manually (making a link in the menu to the category view) or redirecting that Page by using a plugin like Redirectify.

    This thread offers one of the possible solutions:

    (although it is about a "home" link - it could be used for anything)
