Unlocking More Magic from another Free WordPress Plugin
Blog-in-Blog is a CMS friendly plugin which allows you to create category pages and assign WordPress blog posts to display on these pages.
How it works:
- Use shortcode in a page to select a number of posts within a specified category. This page with the shortcode becomes your ‘blog’ page (you can of course call it what you will).
[blog_in_blog category_id=1 num=10]Must specify the
category_id. Optionally specify a number of posts, defaults to 10.
- You can then optionally hide a specified category from the normal home page (there is an admin page for you to select the category).
Therefore, any posts with the chosen category are shown only on your page and not on the home page, so if you use WordPress as a CMS, you now have a blog within a blog.
If I only knew about this plugin when I started the Free Congregation website -argh!
