I did some searching on the topic but was only able to come up with one thread (http://wordpress.org/support/topic.php?id=7656) that doesn't seem to contain any actual information.
I'd like to setup one -- possibly two -- miniblogs on my site for music and short pieces about interesting articles elsewhere. Is there a plugin for this? Or is there a relatively easy way to hack the code into my theme, maybe by just checking which category a given post is in and displaying or not displaying it accordingly?
This later option seems like an obvious solution to me but I can't figure out how to make sure the proper number of posts show up in each section on the page as, from what I can tell, the total number of posts pulled in by the posts loop is set in the admin and that would be divided up among all the posts displayed, whether in the miniblog or elsewhere.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
