Only display posts in a certain category? (7 posts)

    I apologize if this can be done, I haven't been able to find it.
    If I wanted to get a list of all the posts in a certain category, can I do it? Can I use "The Loop" to do this?
    I'd like to use the "hack" if you will that other systems use where you make all of your posts to a "blog posts" category that gets showed on the front page, and then if I post to a "Music I'm currently listening to" category, then I only show the last one from that category on the side bar, ditto for "Last Movie I saw" etc...
    Does WP handle this and how so?
    I did look for this information, so please let me know if it's out there and I missed it. Thanks!

    so is this possible?

    I want to do a simlar thing. how can you include the last post from a particular category like"Currently Listening To" on every page where the side menu is displayed.

    I want to include it in my side menu?

    I have got any details with me, but you can do this with a couple of plug-ins, easily.

    Get Ryan Boren's plug-in to specify which posts to allow on front page. And then the customisable posts plug-in will let you put a recent comments (from particular cat) in ur sidebar.

    Sorry I haven't got any more details than that!

    Hardly a dead end, I think. Don't know if this is what you guys are really looking for, but it's a start.....

    Thanks for adding the link, vkaryl. You're right, this is far from a dead-end. I've got something similar on two sites that I've built using WP.
