I couldn't find an answer relating to this, maybe I just didn't come across it yet.
So the setup of the site I am working on at the moment:
The Front Page is not set, is default. I can't change this because of the way the template functions, it would be too much work for me to change it.
The site already has categories setup, but none are called 'Blog'. The client wants there now to be a 'Blog' category which see can assign posts to as her personal 'Blog' - away from the rest of the site's categories. The thing is she also wants to have a number of other categories' posts show up when navigating to that '/blog/ URL.
How would I go about doing this?
- Would I duplicate the existing 'archive.php' file and make modifications, and somehow point the /blog/ URL to it?
- Do I have to modify the 'archive.php' file to pick up the URL and modify the query?
- Create a filter/action for his purpose.
The page would display like any other archive, as in posts are listed in date order back.
Note: I can't move the existing categories, they must stay where they are.
I'm wondering by doing this at all will it have repercussions i.e. will it cause other issues?
Thanks for your time, much appreciated.
