Support » Fixing WordPress » HOW: Display certain categories, problem

  • My site ( is just a gallery site with three areas for posts: gallery, featured and asides. “Gallery” shows posts as “posters” and includes many different categories where “Featured” and “Asides” only show one category.

    <?php if (have_posts()) : while (have_posts()) : the_post(); ?>
    <?php if (in_category('Asides') && is_home() ) continue; ?>
    <?php if (in_category('Featured') && is_home() ) continue; ?>

    I use this in my index.html file to get the gallery (posters) to show up and EXCLUDE the Asides and Featured (articles) categories.

    THE PROBLEM: I have WP set up to display 12 posts on the home page. Every time I post to the category Featured or Asides, it hides those posts (which is correct) from the “Gallery” section but still seems to count them as one of the 12 posts. I end up with only 5 posts in the “Gallery” section where I want 12. I increased the BLOG PAGES SHOW AT MOST setting in the admin area to 21 with no change in my home page.

    Anyone understand what I’m trying to get at? Help?
