I’m using WP for my site, and we are wanting to make a few minor changes to our homepage content area. Here is what we are wanting to do.
At top center have a “Quote of the Day”, below that have normal static info, then below that have a portion of our latest post.
Question 1: We would like to be able to add a quote everyday to the posts, with a category of say “QD”, but if possible I would like to have this category hidden in the Category list in the sidebar. Not sure if there is a way of hiding a category. If anyone knows a solution to this, please help, if not we will just have to leave it listed.
Question 2: We would like to pretty much have this homepage automatically update the Quote of the Day and latest post. I’ve tried a couple of things but it just isn’t working right. I’m sure it is probably something simple that I’m missing, but I’m still fairly new to WP and PHP. So I outlined what we were after above. For the Quote of Day, I want it to show the latest (only 1) quote that would most likely be categorized as QD (hopefully hidden as described above), then the static content, then the latest post from all categories except QD, and only one post.
Thank you to anyone that is able to give me some guidance.
