Support » Theme: New Blog » A question about catagories

  • Hi on the home page, above the blog posts it has a box with each category.

    Basically I have a category called ‘random’, I’d like a few posts under that category but if I add say 5 posts under the category ‘random’ there will be 5 ‘random’ boxes above the posts.

    Have a look at the site and you’ll see what I mean. I have two posts under ‘Random’ and 2 category boxes for ‘random’ at the top of the site. Ideally I want one ‘random’ category box to link to the 2 posts under the category ‘Random’

    Many thanks.

    The page I need help with: [log in to see the link]

    Hi,

    Thanks for using new blog.

    What i understand is you want to show 2 posts from random category at the top. Then followed by other remaining 2 post.

    There is no easy selection way to do this.
    But you can do following.

    1. make two new post of a same exiting post under category random. you can delete older post then.
    2. chose order by recent published date.

    The system will first show those recent two post and then followed by other.

    thanks

    No not quite.

    There are six category boxes at the top next to the picture of me and about me.

    2 of the categories are the same – Random. If you click on either of those boxes it shows the random post. I just want one category box called Random with the 2 posts in there. It’s the same with ‘Tables’. There are 2 category boxes that both the individual table posts. I just want one category box on the front page with the two table posts in it.

    Basically, if I add another 6 ‘table’ posts under the category name ‘Tables’, I’ll then have 8 different looking category boxes on the front page, all called tables and all showing different posts if you click on any of them. If I add 20 more table posts it’s going to look silly.

    I just want one category box for all the categories (Tables, random, chairs etc) and any posts I put under that category name to go in it.

    Also, is there anyway to remove the category boxes at the top and just have the latest post at the top of the blog and the category boxes down the side or something?

    Many thanks.
