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?
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.
just my $0.02
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?
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.
