I would really love to figure this out as well!
I am super dumb when it comes to all this online web set-up stuff. So, reading most of this forum information is way above my head...
But, I am trying to put together a simple blog website for a non-profit group and would love to make things as simple as possible so we can have someone who knows even less than I do post to the site!
Example: We have a few events each year, I would like to be able to create a post and mark it in the upcoming event category, it would then show up on the front page (which I have a magazine style and it works great!) and on the upcoming events page... After the event is completed I would like to update the post and simply uncheck upcoming event category and check the history category and the post would simple redirect to the history page.
I have tried the "List Category Post" Plug-in with NO success at all.
