    Hi,

    Is itpossible to se up posts that onlyappear on a certain page and not the index page. I have a fixed index page and what to set up a shopping page under a different tab. I want to post to a "shopping" catagory and I want those posts to only appear on the shopping page and not anywhere else. Is this possible?

    Thanks

    2 options

    1. Find a theme that does what you want. There are some out there.
    2. Change the programing for the index page to exclude certain categories. Not terribly difficult and I'm sure you could find someone to do it for you pretty cheaply.

    This is correct. There's also a third option of creating a completely different page for your home page and then linking to your wordpress for the actual content.

    This will get you closer to what you want to achieve http://anappleaday.konceptus.net/posts/wp-hide-post/
    Or you create a page as you want the home page to look then go into Settings>Reading then select static page and choose the one you want to display
