For advanced users who want to display recent posts from a specific category, we have this article specially for you. Beginner-level users most likely won’t require this. This tutorial is useful in creating magazine style themes.
Display recent posts from a specific category
<?php $catquery=n ew WP_Query( 'cat=3&posts_per_page=10' ); while($catquery->have_posts()) : $catquery->the_post(); ?> <ul> <li> <h3><a href="<?php the_permalink() ?>" rel="bookmark"><?php the_title(); ?></a> </h3> <ul> <li> <?php the_content(); ?> </li> </ul> </li> </ul> <?php endwhile; ?>
At the top where it says showpost= change the number to how many posts you want to display, and cat=3 is the id of the category, so change the ID of the category to pick which category will you be displaying.
