When you display a specific category listed in the static page of wordpress, there are about two ways.

1.To display a specific category list using the short code
2.To display a specific category list using PHP code and plug-in

I think more of 「1.To display a specific category list using the short code」 is can be introduced easily.

1.To display a specific category list using the short code

There is a useful feature called “ short code ” with the wordpress.

Procedure is simple, with “A. PHP code to the following additional function.php”, “B. Insert the short code to a static page article you want to display a specific category” to.

/*** Short code for displaying a particular category to a static page ***/
function sc_liste($atts, $content = null) {
        extract(shortcode_atts(array(
                "num" => '5',
                "cat" => ''
        ), $atts));
        global $post;
        $myposts = get_posts('numberposts='.$num.'&order=DESC&orderby=post_date&category='.$cat);
        $retour='<ul>';
        foreach($myposts as $post) :
                setup_postdata($post);
             $retour.='<li><a href="'.get_permalink().'">'.the_title("","",false).'</a></li>';
        endforeach;
        $retour.='</ul> ';
        return $retour;
}
add_shortcode("list", "sc_liste");

B.Short example code to be inserted into the static page article

The part you want to display a specific category of static page, insert the following short code.
The following example is when “the number of articles displayed by the 5” “a specific category ID displayed by the 75” of.
