I want to have a category JUST for photo posts. I do not want these posts in this category to show up on the main page, though. I want to have a link in my sidebar for "photos" and then let people go to that category to see the photos.
1. how do I hide a category
2. how can I make a link which will automatically take the clicker to the most recent post in a category? So if I have a link that says "photo of the day" and they click it it will take them to the most recent single post in that category?
