    Hi everyone

    Let's say my WordPress installation is inside a directory called "/blog/".
    I have three categories : News, Shows, and General
    I want the news to show up in news.php, etc

    I tried the loop method that worked in 1.5 to no avail
    How do I go about this?

    Could you explain what you mean by "the loop method"? The loop is WordPress's system of displaying posts.

    So you have WordPress installed in http://www.example.com/blog/, but you want http://www.example.com/news.php to show the news category, http://www.example.com/shows.php to show the shows category, etc.?

    You should read this article on "Giving WordPress its own directory" and this one on category templates, try it out, and let us know what's not working for you.

    thank you for the reply, filosofo

    this http://codex.wordpress.org/Creating_a_Static_Front_Page
    explains somewhat what Im trying to do

    edit: it also seems your plugin might work for me

    the specifics:
    running a band site @ thesexyrobots.net. wordpress is in the "blog_" directory. I want to use WP to be able to update the site.

    Lets say I have a show. I want to post in WP under the shows category and have it show up in the shows.php template I created.

    I'm pretty close to the answer from post

    I just need the right php tag to call it from the "blog_" directory

    the code is http://thesexyrobots.net/wpptest2.txt

    Anyone have a solution?
