I need to be able to make posts and not have them appear on the main page. How can I do this?

I'm using the main page as a blog that will have post daily.

I need to be able to post to the secondary page and not have it show up on the first page.

What is the best way to set this up? Do I need a PlugIn?

I tried Page2Cat but it just bullet point lists Category Titles.

To have posts of a certain category not show up on the home page, find, in index.php, around line 100-103, this:

PHP Code:
    <?php // Do this for all posts:
    
while (have_posts()) : the_post(); $postcount++; ?>
(You might not have the $postcount++ part if your Atahualpa version is older)

and add the following right above it (to exclude posts of the category with the ID 3):
PHP Code:
<?php if ( is_home() AND !is_paged() ) {
query_posts($query_string "&cat=-3");
?>
To exclude posts from several categories, i.e. categories with the ID's 3, 7 and 11:

PHP Code:
<?php if ( is_home() AND !is_paged() ) {
query_posts($query_string "&cat=-3,-7,-11");
?>

I do have that code. It's around line 41 though.

I was hoping that I could create a custom field or do something else. I would like to avoid having to update my index.php every time I post to the secondary page.

Any other Ideas or suggestions?

Why would you have to update your index.php each time? If you want a new post to not appear on the homepage, put it into the category that you excluded with the above code.

The code works, the new posts are now only posting to the Category I want them to.

Is it possible to not have those posts show up in the "Recent Post" widget?

Also the posts to the Categories show up in a "Collapsed" state, not showing the content in the body, only the Title. Any idea about this?

Probably with another widget, something that offers more options. See http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/

Only the title, or the title and a part of the body? Are you using the Read more tag
HTML Code:
<!--more-->
in those posts? That would require another code

After looking at it a little closer. It will show the Text in the body, but not the images/media in the body. When the Post Title is clicked the body will expand and show the image/media.

No, I'm not using the more tag.

I can't find something to work that doesn't through off the design of the site. All That I need is the widget to not display comments from a couple categories.

You shouldn't have a page.php. What Atahualpa version do you have?

You seem to be using another theme. I cannot support other developer's themes I'm afraid. I suggest that you ask on the blog of the developer of your theme.

Hi Flynn, I was wondering if we could backtrack to a part of post #1

Quote:
I need to be able to post to the secondary page and not have it show up on the first page.
NOT having a post turn up has been dealt with, but what about getting it to turn up on the 2ndry page?

How to post a certain category, in this case "news" category posts, to a page called NEWS, whilst any other posts will go to HOME page? I have page2cat plugin, but that doesn't seem to work even though I have filled in all the bits that need to be filled in and linked it all together.

Any ideas?

i have donated as instructed and still can't get in to your thread. I have also written to Flynn to mention this to him (it says to PM him at the top of this forum if you make a donation). Is it up to Flynn or you to credit this donation? Please PM me if you need the email address I used.
