    Hey guys...I've been on the Support Forum for about 4 hours looking for this and tried various plugins for redirection and stuff, but I'm struggling. I have successfully changed my homepage to show only what I want it to show, but I want all OTHER posts (everything but "About the Course" category) to show up under Discussion.

    Any help would be great...thanks for the help and for all the great information on this site :)

    Oh, the URL is http://www.erp.ncsu.edu and I want the actual posts with comments to be here: http://erp.ncsu.edu/?page_id=33

    Normally it doesn't work like that: posts are posts and Pages are Pages. According to the second link you posted you want posts to be displayed on a Page.
    There was a lot of discussion and maybe even some solution for it, just search for "display posts on a page" or something similar.
    I am sure there is always some easy, built-in way to achieve some things, but users are happy to tweak code :)

    Thanks for your help, I just searched with that and found most of the threads I have already read. I have the original index.php before I modified my main home page to show what I want it to, but I want the posts that are made shown on a page within the WordPress...

    Is there a way to make the original index.php show up within that page?

    After literally stumbling thru this Support Forum and the Codex for the last few months, I have finally come up with a combination that works.

    First, I renamed my category 1 to 'All' and made sure that all of the posts I want on my 'page' are in cat 1. I suppose I could have created a new category but I didn't need the "uncategorized" category from the base theme, so the rename worked for me.

    Second, I copied my index.php file from my theme folder and renamed it category-1.php and loaded that back into the theme folder.

    Third, I downloaded, installed and activated the Redirectify Plugin.

    Fourth, I created a new page, established a custom field containing a key of redirect and a value of http://survivalring.org/lodge/?cat=1.

    Works like a charm.

    Please note my website is passworded until I can finish getting the core format and coding completed.

    Thanks for the help. I got everything working with your help. I have one last question: What if I want the post to show up only on my static page, not the main blog?

    To innerphaze - its all solved (i'm pretty sure) in http://wordpress.org/support/topic/32242?replies=28#post-376976 - there you cand find a solution to sorting every category of blog posts in a certain category to a specific static page.
