Blogs for two independent categories?
Sorry if I am asking a noob question - I've been searching the forum and haven't really found my specific situation yet.
Here is what I am trying to do - I basically have two different post categories that I want to display on two different blog pages on my site.
So on my main page, you might see all my new posts regardless of category, but in the nav bar, there is a link that goes to a blog page displaying only posts in category "A", and then another nav bar link to a blog page that only displays posts in category "B"
Is this possible? In my dashboard, I can only select a global category for blog posts, so I am not sure how to separate things into two different blog pages.
No biggie if it is not possible, but I have the feeling I am missing something obvious that I would have picked up on if I wasn't so burned out today...
Thanks for the help!
So two approaches to this.
first your archive page acts this way anyway, listing all posts from a certain category
second you can create a second blog template though the category will not be set via options.
If you let me know what theme you are using I can move this post there and help you with the code.
Ahh, I think I see - so if I make another template that is exactly like the blog template - then I could manually insert the category, even though I wouldn't see it on my dashboard.
I've never done that before, so I'll search the tutorials and forum for more info, but I am using Agent theme, so if you bounce this thread over there and anyone has already done something similar, any advice is greatly appreciated.
Insert your new template name. look for cat=1 and change the one to the category ID you want to pull, and insert the title you want on the page.
