Support » Fixing WordPress » The best way to include lists of posts within a page?

  • Resolved bencharity


    I am creating a page that has 5 main divs. Each div will contain a list of every post that pertains to that section.

    So the ‘Restaurants’ div will contain a link to every post about a restaurant… etc.

    My question is, what is the best way to do this? I was thinking that I would use blog categories to separate the posts, and I would like the post snippets to display the title, maybe an image (not necessary), and a snip of the text (20-30 words). This would be in a two column layout, about 350px wide each.

    What is the best way to do this? Is there a tag to call a category with a snip of the post? This will be hard coded in the template rather than in the post if it matters.

    Thanks in advance!

    For anyone else looking, this displays the posts in list form:

     $postslist = get_posts('numberposts=5&order=ASC&orderby=date&category=7, 17, 18, 19, 20, 21, 22, 23, 24');
     foreach ($postslist as $post) :
    <li><a href="<?php the_permalink(); ?>"><?php the_title(); ?></a></li>
     <?php endforeach; ?>

    This displays 2 posts from category 7 with the title and an excerpt:

    while(have_posts()) : the_post();
    		<h5><a href="<?php the_permalink() ?>" rel="bookmark"><?php the_title(); ?></a></h5>
    		<?php the_excerpt(); ?>
    <?php endwhile; ?>
    <?php wp_reset_query(); ?>
