Is this possible?
After reading "Building Communities with Drupal, phpBB and WordPress" (the only book I could find on WordPress) I've been playing around with the Filosofo Home-page control plug in and I'd like to use it in the following way.
I have a home page set via the <home page plug-in> with a paragraph of text. Along with the text I'd like to display one post from each of the blogs categories on the front page. The posts would be abbreviated using the <more> tag so only about 20 words or so would be on the front page.
I was thinking that if I set up my categories like this
Then, when writing the post, one would select the main category (either Dogs, Cats or Fish) but you could also select if you want that particular post to appear on the home page by also selecting the <Home> category along with the main category. It seems like a nice and easy way of having a flexible, simple CMS.
I imagine that you would just need a call that displays the <home> category's posts within a <div></div> tag.
How would one do this?
