    PLEASE...someone help, quick!

    I am trying to figure out how I can post multiple posts on a page other than the main page. For example, I want to post music articles on my music page, and dance articles on my dance page... (below is how the tabs/pages look on the site).

    Home Music Dance

    Right now all my posts just go on the homepage. PLEASE help me and say there is a solution or plugin or something.

    If you categorize your posts, then use this technique: How to easily display links to both Pages and Categories in the blog navigation header?

    Also look at the plugin http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/simply-exclude/ to exclude categories from your main page.

    I think I did something similar to what you want at http://bluegrassmiataclub.com/. See the Events->Event Talk, and Ads and More ->(all subtopics).

    It turned out to be a fair amount of work, but here is an outline.

    • Set up a Static Front Page.
    • Create a template to display a single category. I had to code my own because I could not find one that handled 'sticky' posts. I used a custon field in the page to specify the Category of the posts to display on that page.
    • Create the Categories you need - 'Music' and 'Dance' and assign them to the respective posts.
    • If you want to restrict navigation to only posts in the same category when someone views a post, you will need to create a modified single.php.

    To make a long story short, I had to do quite a bit of coding. It may be possible to find plugins to do similar work, but none I found did exactly what I needed.

    I will share my code with you if you wish. You can contact me using the About->Contact Us form on the BluegrassMiataClub.com site. Just select Webmaster to contact.
