  • I want to have posts show on the above page but not on the home page
    This is basically a blog under a web site – the blog home page will be a menu choice
    The Posts in Page Plugin works to show the posts but they then also show up on the home page

    The page I need help with: [log in to see the link]

    Howdy @echoitteam – just to make sure I have it clear: your goal is to have a static home page that doesn’t show posts and have another page that shows all or some of your posts?

    Questions:

    1. Will the /it-corner/ page only be pulling in posts from a specific category or are you planning to pull in all posts?
    2. What are your current settings for Your homepage displays on your Settings > Reading section in the WP Admin?

    Thanks!
    Eric

    The goal is to have the Home Page show all posts EXCEPT one category “IT Corner” which should be shown only on the IT Corner page.

    I do not maintain the main site and am just beginning to work with WordPress. The Home Page Setting is Latest Posts.

    Hi @echoitteam

    I think you can accomplish what you want by making sure you have two pages – one for Home and another for your IT Corner.

    On the home page, you’ll have a shortcode like this:

    [ic_add_posts exclude_category='it-corner']

    And, on your IT Corner page, it’ll look more like:

    [ic_add_posts category='it-corner']

    Then, within WordPress Admin, go to Settings > Reading and set a static page for your Home page.

    Does that work?

    That worked for the IT Corner Page but I do not see an option to add short code to the Home Page
    Our site was created several years ago and has been maintained since by volunteers with limited WordPress knowledge.
    I do not maintain the main site and am very reluctant to mess with the Home Page – which is based on the Twenty Eleven Theme

    Also, on your home page in the WP Admin, do you see if it’s using a custom Page Template (look in right hand column, if on desktop).
