I'm picking up the issue discussed here http://forum.bytesforall.com/showthread.php?t=177.

I'm using WP as a CMS, with static pages. But there are some blogs in the site, and I want to house the blogs on static pages (click on About Agnon-->From the Head of School at http://theagnonschool.org to see what I mean). At the top of each static page, there will be some intro text, followed by the blog posts.

Category Page Plug-in seemed like the perfect solution, but like brad in http://forum.bytesforall.com/showthread.php?t=177, I couldn't figure out where to put the code because there's no archive.php file. I searched through all the php files looking for a likely place to put the code that makes the Category Page plug-in work, but didn't find one.

Then I fiddled around the built in ATO --> Archives page, but really I need to create a custom archive page for each blog category.

I also used the Redirection plug-in to set the page menu link for the static page to redirect to the category archive page, but those dynamic archive pages don't have the static text at the top, naturally.

Perhaps I'm going about this all wrong?

If I've managed at all to explain what I need, perhaps someone can take pity on me and tell me if and how I can get Atahualpa to do this.

Thanks in advance.

You can create all missing default WP template files such as page.php, archive.php, single.php by copying Atahualpa's index.php

Thanks, Flynn. Just so I'm clear: You're saying that I could copy index.php, name it archive.php, and insert the cat2page php code where the plugin authors indicate?

Yes, you can copy index.php and create 2 types of templates from it, standard WP templates and custom templates, see http://forum.bytesforall.com/showthread.php?t=491 post #13
