Right now by blog has the 'home' section where all my new posts go, and 'pages' sections which are static pages that i can edit.

my question is, can i have another section that will behave like the 'home' link?

for example, can i have a page called 'cars' and a section called 'cats', where i can add new posts to either section?

if this is not possible, what are some workarounds?

edit: i dont want the blog homepage to contains ALL stories, i want it to contain all stories under the cat category, and the 'car' page contain all the posts under 'car' category.

in essence, it will be like i have 2 different blogs under a single blog

You can also create a custom feed and this to WP; use the function add_feed() for add a feed to WordPress and define the content inside the feed.

A example for feed with the drafts of WP can you read in this post.

You can use categories. Have a "Cats" category, and a "Cars" category.

Your main Blog Posts Index will show Posts in all categories by default, but your Category archive index pages will show only posts from the given category. So:

  • example.com: all blog posts
  • example.com/category/cats/: posts in the "Cats" category
  • example.com/category/cars/: posts in the "Cars" category

And each category archive index page has its own feed, so you can have a "Cats" feed, and a "Cars" feed:

  • example.com/feed/: feed for all blog posts
  • example.com/category/cats/feed/: feed for the "Cats" category
  • example.com/category/cars/feed/: feed for the "Cars" category
  • fair enough maybe my post wasnt specific. i dont want to have a feed for all blog posts, so going 'home' will give you either cats or cars. – mkoryak Jul 18 '11 at 21:17

My solution is to combine the categories solution with a redirect plugin to clean up the URL:

Let's say your page, "Bacon and Beans," has a blog and two podcasts, one on "Bacon" and one on "Beans":

example.com/category/blog/feed
example.com/category/podcast/feed
example.com/category/podcast/bacon/feed
example.com/category/podcast/beans/feed

You can use the Quick Page/Post Redirect Plugin so that instead your users can type something more manageable and redirect to the desired feed:

Your blog feed:

example.com/blog    --> example.com/category/blog/feed

Your podcast feed:

example.com/podcast --> example.com/category/podcast/feed

Sub-feeds for your podcast:

example.com/bacon   --> example.com/category/podcast/bacon/feed
example.com/beans   --> example.com/category/podcast/beans/feed
