    I want to be able to have multiple pages of post. I like the way the post continue on and on, but is there a way to have multiple pages or categories of post. For example, the first page you see on the site is just a static page of "Welcome to my site... Blah Blah Blah. Then you can pick between 3 or so pages, then on each page is a list of different post that are specific to that category. I don't want to have one list of post that you can filter different categories out of, I want to be able to have 3 or more separate pages of post. I hope this makes sense. Thanks in advance.

    would it not be better to go to the wordpress forum to ask this?

    I guess I could of, but I respect and value the opinions of the people in this forum. I didnt think a wordpress question was so unheard of in this forum.

    having a static homepage is no problem.

    i suppose you could then make the links the results of the categorized posts rather than a link to the blog as a whole.

    the other option would be three different installs of WP each specific to the topic/category

    Yeah absolutely that's possible. You'll want to look into using a custom template as your static front page, and on that page you can put the three links you want to /category/whatever, /category/anotherone, etc. You can customize the category archive template as well so that it doesn't look so archive-ish (Wordpress' default templates are really verbose about telling you you're browsing an archive page).

    Not sure if I understood you correctly.

    You want to display 3 different categories on the main page?

    He wants it so it seems like the site has several different, distinct blogs from what I understand.


    And yeh, as said above, this should be possible. If not, it may be worth you looking into ExpressionEngine, which works a little differently, but allows publishing multiple blogs.
