A basic question from a very humble and intimidated newbie.

The List-Category-Post plugin looks like it will let me do exactly what I want to do, which is what the Wordpress codex calls "A page of posts." I downloaded the plugin instead of changing any templates myself. As per instructions, I went to the admin menu and activated it. I even found the widget under the appearance menu. I know absolutely nothing about coding, so I want to avoid editing files on templates and instead "use the default [file] included in the plugin's code." How do I connect this to a page so that I can actually see the categorized posts appearing? I feel like there must be something very simple that I'm missing--a box to check or some custom menu to activate.

I hope this is not too basic a question for this forum. I came here because the plugin download page said that Fernando had chosen this forum for support. Many thanks for your help!

Its a great plugin and i believe the developer is a member here. To use it simply create a new page and use the plugin's shortcode [catlist id=1] change 1 with the actual category id.
