    I'm am looking to:
    1) have posts of certain categories, Press & Events, appear ONLY in their own individual pages, and
    2) exclude them from being displayed in the “Posts Page” without using plugins.
    The Front Page is set up as a static page.

    For item 1), I set up a template that displays posts from a category that has the same name as the page. (See

    For item 2), I've tried different approaches discussed in this forum but I have not been able to implement them successfully, probably because the facts of the other topics were different than mine and because I'm very new to php.

    What code do I need to insert where? I'll greatly appreciate any suggestions!

  2. Put the following code into your functions.php file and modify the category ID.

    You can read more about query_posts() in the codex:

    function childtheme_above_indexloop() {
    	$paged = (get_query_var('paged')) ? get_query_var('paged') : 1; query_posts("cat=-3&paged=$paged");
    add_action('thematic_above_indexloop', 'childtheme_above_indexloop');
