Support » Fixing WordPress » so close yet so far | exclusions and conditionals semi-static pages

  • Hi.

    Got a site.
    Mostly works.
    Got to index.php and all the posts show. Don’t want that. I want only specific categories to post there. so I do set up a call to show only a specific category (system maintinence annoucements). This works. I can only see the one category on index.php…

    But now, when I click to see other categories from other pages where I have all posts showing, I don’t get anything except the page that shows the exclusion (only system maintinence announcements)

    Can someone lend a hand and point me in a direction with solid assistance?

    Thank you very much.

    So far the list assistance has been excellent for me….

  • If I had to guess, I’d guess that your theme doesn’t have a category.php so defaults to re-using your index.php.

    If that’s the case, I’d lean towards creating a category.php

    Thanks HandySolo.

    I went ahead and created one from the “archive.php” file per the codex and I’m still getting the same “error”.

    I then created 9 category pages (to match existing categories in Admin = Manage/Categories) each called “category-6” “category-7” (….etc)

    Same problem exists.

    (I’m wondering if there may be a better way/place to put my conditional calling system maintinence announcements? something that wouldn’t break….)

    either way – I’m stuck “trying to get over this wall” for now –

    any other ideas? anyone?

    oh…and I do have a single page “category.php” in the directory too
