Display Your WordPress Recent Posts on a Static Page

WordPress Tutorial

This tutorial shows you how to display your recent posts on a static web page. So now you ask the question ‘Define Static?’ There are a variety of reasons why you may have static pages. You could, for example, have built a website from scratch and then decided to integrate a blog or news section into it and require to pull some information from the blog to your homepage. There have been several methods on the web including directly accessing the database. This is a simple but elegant solution in which I will show you 2 methods, one of which will be on a page with a .php extension and another will be on a page with a .htm extension. If you want to display your latest posts on an existing WordPress blog please check out the following post.

New World was an adaptation of my 3rd WordPress theme. It is lightweight and suitable for all audiences. It includes a customisable social networking header that has it’s own admin area. Comments are written throughout the template files to aid your customisation. Once downloaded please read the readme.html in the instructions folder for general F.A.Qs.

Exclude WordPress Pages from Displaying In Search Page!

WordPress Tutorial

WordPress automatically assigns the default category to a single page. This is a simple way to exclude certain pages, for example, a contacts page, from displaying in your search results. A simple way around this is to create a new category, in this instance I have called it pages. Once the category is created hover over the newly created category and look for the cat-ID number as shown below, remember it or write it down.
