    How do I do that? Each blog will serve its own purpose with its own posts etc.

    Basically, if I write a post, I will need to be able to specify which blog the post will go to.

    Hey there,

    having two independent blogs is not envisaged in Ikebana, i.e. this feature is not available “out of the box”. In principle, there are three ways you can achieve this:

    – Create a WP Multisite, as described here

    – Simply use categories to sort the posts, and use the category archive pages (www.example.com/category/[name]) as two separate blogs

    – or create a new custom template file using a WP_Query loop that displays posts that meet certain criteria (e.g. category, tag, or a custom taxonomy).

    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?

    Hey there,

    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.
