1nt3rw3b g33ks: HALP.

So say I have a website with a page that updates with every post I make. Yay! Now say that I want to make a secondary page that ALSO has posts that update just like the main page, but a different topic.

...is there a certain plugin for this? (I use Wordpress, if you need to know.) Am I trying to divide by zero?

Also, I am super happy that my town has buried power/phone/cable lines. 3 inches of ice on my front porch and on all the trees.

Also, here is an epicly awesome picture of Russia's Greatest Leader to make you want to help me.

Hey, you didn't tell me the Russians were shooting a movie version of Stallioncrest!! I hope you got a big fat option on the script.

My best suggestion is to use the categories feature in some way so that all posts tagged as such and such get fed into the content of that particular page.

Something like this, maybe: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/list-category-posts/

I think the Pioneer Woman has several different blogs that have a highly customized RSS feed on the main page. I'm not sure if you need something that heavy duty since it's only one page.

I want a smaller scale version of that, so that's an excellent tip, thank you! now to put the info on that link you thoughtfully shared into English...

(Thank you, really. It sounds like I can do what I'm wanting, YAY!)

No problem. If you need help with the widget or it's not quite what you were looking for, just ask me and I'll do my best to help out. The one I linked looks like it lists post titles, but it shouldn't be hard to find one that gives you entire posts.

You are delightful. I know NOTHING about web building or their tools. I'm proficient on LJ's html, lol.

I appreciate the offer!

Man, you North Texans get ALL the ice! SA must be caught in a vortex or something. We have iced over here a couple of times but most of the time, it's like the weather happens AROUND us and not here itself.

ICE HOG!! QUIT HOGGING THE ICE!!

You can shoot me an email if you want. *grins*

I have a plugin I use to make "category pages" so say posts on one topic go on one page if someone just wants to read on that topic, as opposed to wading through my blog for everything.

Is that what you're looking for? (main blog, all posts, secondary page, filtered posts?)

I haven't read the comments here, but also looks like you may have gotten help already. Wordpress is awesome. There are plugins for just about everything you'd want to do. :)

That's what I'm looking for, I just need to learn how the lingo works so I can figure out how to implement this! I'm an old dog, and this is a new trick...

I r smrt.

I gues you guys are... snowblind in Texas. AHAHAHAHA!

Sad, sad metal geek.

Still, the band is awesome in concert, even if the frontman is now a born again Christian. He just no longer flashes the horns or sings "Fuck like a beast".

Are You Actually

Reading this? I'm just curious. Because that's really detail-oriented of you. Feel free to stop reading. But you can see that there's more here, so are you going to keep reading? Really? That's pretty dedicated. I'm impressed. No, really. I'm not being sarcastic, why do you get like that? See, this is the problem I have with your mother - yes. YES. I'm going there. It's time we put all of our cards on the table.

I love you, why are you doing this? After all we've been through? You don't have to be like this. You know, still reading. You could be baking a pie. And then sharing it with me.
