Custom Circles on homepage

    Hi Andrew,

    Currently I can see circles as posts on my homepage.

    I want to create a static page which includes 6 circles and when I click in that circles there will be posts with circles again.

    I have followed all the steps for creating custom circles on homepage.

    However couldnt get tht about page on homepage and still the posts are appearing.

    Is there a different way to do it.
    Thanks,
    Sellin

    I’m guessing you can link a custom circle to a category page here? I’ve not created category pages before, but I think when posts are assigned to a category that category page will show circles for those posts.

    Sorry, could you explain this issue more?

    and still the posts are appearing.

    To clarify, do you only want custom circles on the home page?

    Yes I do only want 6 custom circles on home page
    like about, works, recipes, products

    every other day when I post a new recipe I dont want it to appear on home page and directly to go under recipe circle.

    Thanks Andrew.

    Can you set a limit on your Home page to 6 circles?
    Hopefully this plugin will allow you to separate out the limits, so that the homepage limit doesn’t affect the category page limit: http://wordpress.org/plugins/custom-post-limits/

    I think for a static homepage this is what I needed.
    If I can post categories on home page as circles, it will be done.

    Is it possible to post categorie as a circle so I can use tags to post under that circle.

    Thanks

    Can you get a newly created normal circle to show up on the Home page? There’s not a limit of 10 circles on the Home page, is there?

    I created.
    One post is sticky and I have allowed 9 posts to show on home page.

    Always 10 circles appear.

    Oh I think there’s a problem with the sticky circles.

    I didn’t create the custom circle code to be used with sticky circles, I’ll look into this.

    Thanks a lot Andrew.

    Is there a way to use categories as circles on home page if there is that will work with me as well.

    Thanks by the way.
