Hmm.. I can probably get by with using CATEGORY for the immediate time being. But, is there a way to make only one category show up in the blog by default. If the user wants to see the other blog, they can select that category etc. but, by default, only one category will show up when the BLOG is chosen. Is that possible?
limiting the default WP blog page to only one category would require certain adjustments to the code of the “index.php” theme template (see e.g. here for more details), or creating a new page template with a loop that filters the results by category.
