Limit Posts to Category (Not Main Page) (7 posts)

    I'm wondering if anyone knows of a way to allow blogger to keep a post out of the main page feed, and have it only appear on a category page?

    One of my clients wants to have "specialty" posts that aren't directly related to the blog topic, and doesn't want them cluttering up the home page.

    Only thing I can think of is to create a "main" category and have that set as the home page... and just not tick that category on specialty posts. But, since the specialty posts are going to be the exception, not the rule, seems like a pain to add an extra step like that if not necessary.

    Any ideas?

    - Note quite what im looking for ..

    What I need is, when a poster via postie, sends a post to Category A, it goes directly to Category A, (And is not shown on "Home/front page" but if a poster Doesn't choose a category it will land on the default page "Front page / home" , I know, its a bit difficult to explain.. Would this be possible.. I admit I might be a little noob'ish, but Ive been searching the forum for 48 hours now without any luck..

    Any suggestions?

    Posters don't decide where a post is display -- that is done via your theme's templates or a plugin.

    Probably should look at http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/simply-exclude/

    Use the template tag, wp_list_categories(), with the hide_empty=0` argument.
