    Long title...
    I guess itt must have been solved somewhere but by searching the forum I don't get exactly what I need. I also googled but so far nothing really relevant, particularly ref. to Thematic Child Theme.

    Here is my question :
    I wish to create a page with "latest News" only.
    Posts created for these page have a single category "News".
    When I write a News Posts, I do not want it to appear on the Home page of the Blog. I need the post to appear on a page called "News".
    I tried various stuffs like Custom Post Type, I played with custom a apage in Thematic...But it does not work out with my idea.

    Any tut ? Any suggestion as a start ? Did anybody did that ?
    Thank you again for your precious help.

  2. do you plan to have a static page for the home page? is the home page loading posts from other categories?

    Hi Jonnny
    Sorry for late reply... I just passed again to the forum.
    Since this thread I worked on many solution.
    To answer first your question :
    The home page loads posts from all other categories.

    I found a solution with a plugin called "WP Filter Post Category" which makes a pretty good job.
    I don't know if it The Best Way...But it fixed my urgent need.
    Any better suggestion is of course welcome !
    Thank you for passing by,

  4. if it works for you, all good.
    it sounds like you could have just set up a custom post type for news. that said, if you haven't used custom post types yet, the plugin was a good solution if the project was urgent.
