  1. @Ms Martino Sorry for slow response but been pondering the best way. Probably you need to make your homepage a static page rather than a post page. Then that should work. However worth posting the question in the Edublogs forum and asking Dr Mike what he thinks.

  2. I want to apologize upfront–I know this doesn’t have anything to do with the topic, but I would really appreciate an answer to my question. I would like only my “Admin Announcement” categories posts to show on the main page. I would like my other category posts to be shown only when a viewer clicks on the category in the category widget. Is this possible?
