How can I post to pages and not just to home page???
Hi, I need help!!

I am trying to create a page that I can add posts to like the home page that automatically shows new posts.

I saw this solution on http://codex.wordpress.org/Pages#Cre...Page_Templates

Where they give html to create a pageofposts.php page that will show posts from a specific category.

I did what they said and uploaded a file I created but it didnt work.

After I chose the new template and published the page just the html was visible - no posts, layout or sidebars.

Do I have to modify the pagefposts.php that they say to copy? Can this even be done with this theme?

Please help, thank you. :confused:

In the Gold Forums Tutorials, is 'HOWTO: a 'Custom Query' PAGE template' with directions. You must donate at least $20 to get access to the gold forums. Here is part of the post

Want to show all the posts in a category - you can do it
Want to show all the posts for several categories - you can do it
Want to show all the posts for a tag? - you can do it
Want to show all the post except those from a category? - you can do that
Want to show all stickies? - yup, you can do that too

There are plugins that will let you show a set of posts in a particular category on a page. There is also a really neat page template in the Gold Forum Tutorials that you can have access to for the measly price of donating $20 or more to either the forum in general or to either of the moderators. I vote for me though. Really the price of admission is pretty cheap and we have to support ourselves somehow.

how can I get custom page templates?

is this still relevant with the Atahualpa 3.5.3?

Thank you.

You should be able to access the Gold forum now and yes it is still relevant with 3.5.3.
