[Resolved] How do I create a post (note page) and list all post under selected category?

  • I would like to create a post (not a page) that I can write something then list all the posts under selected posts, how I can achieve that?

    Thanks

  • then list all the posts under selected posts

    I’m not quite clear on what you are asking there…could you explain further. Thanks.

    Sorry for my English, for example, I have a category called “reading”, and there are about 10 posts in this category. Now I want to create a post (not page) to summarize these 10 posts, so first I want to write blah blah blah at the beginning, then at the bottom of this post, list all the other 10 posts.

    Hope I explain a little better now.
    Thanks

    Have you looked at some plugins that might work for you?

    And please note, your English is splendid–sometimes I just need a little more explanation 😉

    Thanks. I thought about that too, even though I hadn’t try that, I did see the “related” plugins on some blogs, but I’m afraid that plugin probably won’t list all the related posts or even not in particular order.

    Take those 10 posts for example, let’s say it’s a serious of posts about “reading”, I call them “step 1”, “step 2”, “step 3”, so when I list them, I want them to be listed in that order too, not sure whether the “related” posts would do that?

    So what about just putting a link to each of the articles you are specifying as related at the bottom of each post?

    Otherwise, how would you designate what IS RELATED?

    Well, that would be my last option, as there will be more than 200 posts, it’s very time consuming to manually add the link, that’s why I want to see if there is any better way to do that.

    So how would you determine a related post. By Category? By Tag? By Custom Field?

    Would you want this to happen for every post?

    By category, and order by post date, and yes, every post in this category.

    I still think something like the WP 2.3 Related Posts is the way to go, but if that is not satifactory, you will need a query_posts loop using a category parameter.

    What about the In Series plugin?

    thanks
