    I'm looking to make a new page (like the home page) where posts only from a specific category are posted, on my WordPress blog. So if let's say I'm a regular blogger and would like to post funny pics then I have a page in the menu called Funny Pics where only posts from that category are displayed.

    I've tried several plugins but either they don't work as sought or they have their own custom template for posts, which I do not like, rather the default theme one. I found a plugin to exclude categories from the home page though.

    Perhaps someone has done it or figured it out before, please let me know!

    In my opinion, you need to especially code the homepage that has that feature. Try to look for someone who is capable of working for this kind of feature. By the way, have you tried to visit Problogger [dot] net? try to visit it.

    Thanks for your replies.

    It doesn't seem to be what I'm looking for.

    I was looking for something I can do it myself. What should I look for on that blog? It's just bunch of tips and recommendations, let me know.

    Do you really need homepage layout? Why don't you simply create a new posts category, Funny Pictures, and then post your funny thingsi n that category, that you can link to in your menu.

    If you however wandt the same layout of your homwpage, I would recomment installing another blog on yourdomain.com/funny directory, and link to it in the menu ;)

    I did that, believe me! But the problem is only the posts title is being displayed, not the content..

    What you need is a custom page template that calls the loop with the same wp_query as the frontpage.

    If you now a bit about the wordpress API and theme development, that shouldn't be a problem.
    If not, and if you didn't find a plugin that suit your needs, you will probably need to find someone to do it for you.

    Oh, never mind guys. I found it! I had to go into Thesis menu > Design Options > Archive (under Display Options) > then change it to "Same as your home page".

    Thanks for your replies though.
