I currently have my site in organized in WordPress pages with the Flexi Pages widget plugin to dynamically generate the page menu tree in the sidebar, based on the wp_list_pages() function. My problem is that I need to add a post category that will function like a standard blog - pages of posts with previous/next links, etc. I'm trying to find some way to get a static page to display a post category, complete with navigation.
I found this post - http://wordpress.org/support/topic/232712 - which explains how to call specific posts in a page template. However, I need to find some way to call a whole category, so the visitor can see the latest posts from that category and then browse previous pages, etc.
Alternately, is there a way to get a post category to show up in a certain place in the page menu? Or is there some better way to approach this entirely?
Any help would be really appreciated.
