I'm looking for a way to add a menu to wordpress admin area,so admin can publish and edit posts on a specific category through this menu(just like POSTS menu we already have inside wp admin).

This section is completely separate from wp POST menu. Posts are separate and shouldn't be shown in other menus.

Have you seen custom post types? – toscho Sep 7 '13 at 2:24
Thank you very much for your wonderful help. I used that code and a Menu has been added to my admin area. Now my question is how can I find this category ID? I wanna show this recent posts by a loop. – user21035 Sep 7 '13 at 3:06
