    Wots up evryone

    I’m very new to wordpress and i am trying to do a site at the moment for myself :D . Now this hopefully wont be a silly question….basically what i am trying to do is have my latest post on my home page (which i know how to do !), but then when you click on one of the navigation options, the posts will show up, which are in that category. Hmm did that even make sense !! :?

    An example would be http://net.tutsplus.com/ they have the latest posts on the front page now if you scroll down you will see the post "Quick Tip: Practical CSS Shapes ". Now if you click on the tutorials on the main nav then HTML & CSS you will then see that same article post on that page.

    So i guess thats what im trying to do.

    Could anyone please help….as i said im very new to wordpress.

    cheers

    list cats would list the cats – and not the posts… (I think)

    I use a is_category filter to check if a post is in a cat when I loop though them or use a special page/single template…

    Is that what you mean?

    Hi rob…u must be fed up of me by now !! :lol:

    Well at the moment for my main nav im using wp_list_pages. But i dont know if i should use categories instead. What do you think Nettuts use ?

    Do you see what i mean when i gave that example for nettuts ?

    I will have a quick break before i go crazy….again….then check out the link u sent again.

    Cheers
