Support » Fixing WordPress » How to select which posts go to the home page and which don’t?

  • Hello! First of all, WP is awesome, and is proving to be an invaluable tool.

    My situation is this– I use WP to run a site which is not really a blog. So whenever I make a page of content, I manually add it to the sidebar/etc. for users to access it. All these pages are posts of course, and I do the same with news posts. I want the news posts to show up on the home page, but I don’t want every page I make to– that would clutter the homepage with every bit of content I add.

    Is there some way to select whether a page I publish is displayed on the homepage or not?

    Thanks for any ideas!

    Epicenter, I think non-blog posts (static pages) can be created as HTML pages (not as a new post) and then you can a link to it in the header file so that it appears in the horizontal navigation across the top of the page, and also add a link to the page in a HTML widget in your sidebar. This does require fairly good knowledge of HTML code.

    Part of my planned site is a blog, but it’s not the main part, so is there a way to designate a secondary page as the blog index?

    Thank you.

    I have >100 pages that are already posts and they will still show up as news posts so that doesn’t help unfortunately. 🙁 I need some way I can selectively change what posts will or won’t show up, if that exists..

    Thanks though 🙂

    No way to do this? 🙁



    I’m thinking you skipped reading my post or something.

    Excellent– thanks. I missed that. Advanced Category Excluder works perfectly in my case, even in 2.5.x. The only problem in it I see is that it’s reluctant to use any categories that didn’t exist when it was installed. Thankfully that is a minor problem and I can disregard it.

    Thanks again!
