I have been googling the crap out of this for two hours without much luck. Here is what I need
I have a tabbed content box with three tabs. I want to make three categories in the content box. One category for each tab. That way the user can make a post in wordpress to a specific category and have it automatically show up in the content box under that tab. This content box is on the homepage. I have been able to get the categories to show up, but it shows all of them no matter what category you post in. I want to show the category, title with permalink and the_excerpt() of the post made to that category. I am using this code to prevent the category from showing up in the homepage regualar posting area
got any idea’s. This would make an excellent blog post or tutorial since there does not seem to be an easy to find solution online.
How about Simple Pie?
Pull in your own RSS feed and then filter out what you don’t want.
Chris has a vid on Simple pie here: http://css-tricks.com/video-screencasts/55-adding-rss-content-with-simplepie/
And if memory serves he covered using your own feed in this one: http://css-tricks.com/video-screencasts/41-wordpress-as-a-cms/
It would appear that I found the answer to the problem. That is to make your own loop. You can re use the wordpress loop.
Here is the code I am going with right now
I made a blog.php in there I made my loop to connect to the blog category
I am making edits to the code to show the edit post button, view previous and next or older posts. things like that. But I now have three tabs working, with three different categories and they do not interfere with the homepage posting. I also added
to the homepage loop. so that the posts won’t show up there.
