    Is there a way to add posts to specific pages? I would like to create a new page with posts that specific to that page. They won't appear on the front page.

    Any help would be much appreciated.

    I'm trying to do the exact same thing. But I have a feeling you're going to run into the same problems as me.

    Check out the redirectify and category visibility plugins:

    Let me know how this works out for you and post your problems. I'm curious to see if you run into the same problem I'm having.

    Here is the problem I am having with this.

    Cant you just make a page template for that specific page that calls a category?

    Why is everybody "stuck" with this PAGES idea???
    Category visibility plugin AND any category template would do exactly what you guys are asking for.
    No need for Pages. Pages and posts are two different things. Don't mix them.

    Yeah, you have a point in that the template hierarchy is underused, but I am always using WP as a CMS, so my mind lives in page templates.

    Hey Moshu. Not trying to invade this post or anything... but are you saying that with the category template and category visibility plugin, I can fix the problem I am having that I mentioned above?

    Well, I've also set up many sites with WP as a "cms" - and in most of the cases I found that a wise combination of Pages, sub-Pages + categories with posts... is the most efficient way to go.

    This is all so confusing. What should I do?

    Maybe I'm not explaining my situation well enough. If you take a look at my blog at http://blog.miamicondoinvestments.com I will explain exactly what I want to do. I want to create a page called "real estate videos" that will appear in the header. I want to post videos and property information relating to those videos that will appear only on that page. If I create a page called "real estate videos" then it will only allow me to post one entry within that page. I want the ability to add new entries to that page so that the old ones will move down the page.

    Yes, I understand exactly - and if you are not stubbornly talking and thinking about "Pages"... you would realize I gave you the solution.

    The small detail that your top menu is made by using the wp_list_pages should NOT stop you from reading more carefully the offered advice. Plus, allover gave you the solution for "redirecting" an empty Page to the category view...

    Thank you moshu! I will look into it. I'm sure I can figure it out now. Thanks for showing me the light!

    I've installed the category visibility plug-in and have created a category-81.php file that corresponds to the category ID number. Which directory do I upload the file to?

    Lucas,

    You upload it to your themes Content folder.

    should look like this:

    wp-content -> plugins

    Find your wp-content folder and the put the plugin .php file in the plugins folder.

    oh wait, you were talking about the new category template!

    wp-content -> themes -> find the folder of the theme you are using and put it there. you should see the rest of your themes templates inside that folder.
