    Yes, you can use a plugin for that. Search theplugin directory – I dont know of one off the top of my head.
    Otherwise, you can edit the blog’s loop with an argument like this “&cat=xx” to display only the category you want. First you need to find the loop that the blog is using – using the template hierarchy & a knowledge of your theme. Here’s the page explaining the hierarchy:

    Obviously the easiest solution is a plugin. 🙂

    Thank you Cathy! ; )

    If I want to show multiple cat’s could I use this?

    “&cat=xx01, xx02, xx03”

    Yes – this should give you the info you need. Dont forget to reset the query if you want to use it again.

    Hi Cathy, hoping you can help me with this, having a bit of trouble for a non-coder ; ) Where would I put “&cat=xx” in this code?

    <div class=”post” id=”post-<?php the_ID(); ?>”>
    <div class=”entry”><?php if (have_posts()) : ?>
    <?php while (have_posts()) : the_post(); ?>
    <?php the_content(‘Read the rest of this entry »’); ?>
    <img src=”” width=”370″ height=”11″>
    “><?php the_author() ?> – <?php the_time(‘F jS, Y’) ?> – <?php the_time() ?>


    <img src=”” width=”5″ height=”5″>
    <div align=”center”><img src=””></div>
    <img src=”” width=”5″ height=”20″></div>

    <?php endwhile; ?>
    <span class=”alignleft”>
    <?php next_posts_link(‘« Older posts’) ?>
    <span class=”alignright”>
    <?php previous_posts_link(‘Newer posts »’) ?>

    Thank you in advance ; )

    put right at the top before the loop starts

    <!-- Start loop now -->
    ?> <!-- end loop -->

    Thank you so much!!

    How can I tell which categories coincide with the cat numbers?

    I tried using words like query_posts(‘cat=architecture’); …. but that doesnt work.

    cheers ; )

    found it ; )
