Bit of a wordpress novice and so just wanted to know the best way to do this.

I am currently creating a wordpress site for a client. They have a Latest News section which is the primary 'blog'/posts page. The sidebar also displays the latest blog post.

Now what I would like to do is create a Special Offers page, which works the same as the blog post page, displaying the latest offers, and which the client can update easily through the admin. I would also like to feature the latest special offer in the sidebar.

What would be the best way to do this, as I am assuming you can only have one main posts page?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

try Using custom post type ! This will enable to create a different section in your admin area and it'll work same as normal blog post. Read the codex to know more. – Kuldeep Daftary Dec 9 '12 at 0:46

This is a perfect case for custom post types

Simply create a post type called "specials" and you can use it just like your regular posts.

EDIT: If you're new to WordPress and aren't interested in editing PHP, you can use a plugin like the Custom Post Type UI
