Can you filter by more than one category? (3 posts)

    Is there any way to filter posts by more than one category? Either through the Dashboard or through some sort of plug in on the public part of the site?

    I have a book blog and I would like to be able to sort for all books in a specific genre with a specific rating, for example. Or all 5 star reviews by a specific reviewer. That kind of thing.

    I know I can do a search but that will never capture everything, but since I use these categories, that would theoretically get them all. But I can't figure out how to call up posts from more than one category at a time.

    Anyone have any ideas? Thanks!

    $query = new WP_Query( 'cat=2,6,17,38' );

    Ok, don't think I am an idiot but i have no idea what to do with that. I'm sorry if I am being dense but I really don't even know where to start.

    When I filter by one category, I either click on the category link on the live post (thus pulling up all posts with that category). Or I filter using one of my pages that I have set up to filter that category. Or I sort using my list of posts within the dashboard. So I was hoping maybe something like that was doable for two categories at once so I can narrow my results.

    I am totally open to trying your suggestion though if you can explain to me what I would need to do.
