    Hi guys iv been going out of my mind for about a week now battling to get each individual page on my blog to display different categories, iv read through a lot of other peoples posts on the forum, but non seem to do what i need!
    Im trying to turn my website into a CMS version rather than a blog.

    For example I want automodified.co.za/news/ to only display the news catergorie posts.

    If anybody could help I'd highly appreciate it!
    Kind regards

    Rather than use a static page for categories, try Category Templates « WordPress Codex and then use Template Tags/wp list categories « WordPress Codex in your header.php

    songdogtech's response was the correct one!

    If the problem is one of showing the navigation to your category posts, then try this techinique:
    How to easily display links to both Pages and Categories in the blog navigation header?

    But if you want to do it the 'page way' look at http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/list-category-posts/

    Thanks SOOOO much, iv got a little test up you guys can see..
    the plugin needed a little modification to actually see the posts.
