Support » Fixing WordPress » Showing posts ON pages

  • Hi all,

    Quick question: Is there a way I can display the posts from a certain category on an exisiting page?

    I know this is not the way you usually use WordPress, but we need to find a solution as we have a structure like this:

    Parent Page
    – static subpage 1
    – static subpage 2
    – dynamic subpage 1

    The first two children are static text, the other one should be a category (if possible) or a page displaying a range of posts from this category.

    So apart from our categories, we would like these categories to appear UNDER a parent static parent page.

    How can we achieve this?

    Thanks in advance.

  • hm. duno if you’re still searching or what. also don’t know if this is your problem at all, but thought i would throw it in.

    recently upgraded to 2.7 and have been wrestling a lot – a big problem was precisely (i think) what you’re talking about, *although* i am not filtering out particular categories at this point.

    i had it working in 2.6 where i had a static homepage and posts on a different static page. when i upgraded to 2.7, this disappeared – my home was still static, but i couldn’t find the blog – except as individual posts listed on the sidebar.

    all documentation pointed to Settings>Reading> select “static page” and set “Front Page” to your static page and “Posts Page” to the subpage desired.

    However, *I could not find this option* and I looked everywhere in the admin panel.

    FIX: I removed semiologic’s “Inline Posts” plugin, as I was not using the semiologic theme anymore.

    LESSON: some plugins affect the standard functionality of the platform. I’m not sure if this incompatibility is specific to semiologic plugins. I imagine not.

    Let me know if this helps.

    This seems related, so I’m chiming in here…
    Is it possible to have more than one posts page, each displaying posts from one or several categories?
    If not, do you know a good way to display posts (including excerpts and maybe a picture in the posts) and not just a list of posts in a certain category on a page?
