Join Joseph Lowery for an in-depth discussion in this video Developing category-driven pages, part of Dreamweaver CC and WordPress 3.8 Essential Training.
…In separate previous lessons we covered WordPress pages and categories.…In this lesson I'll show you how much more…you can do with them when you combine their power.…Though the first step is going to be to create a page for our specific category.…And the easiest way to handle that chore is to…duplicate the index.php page that's already found in our Roux…theme folder, which I can easily do in Dreamweaver's File panel.…So I have that open, but let me expand it all the way.…
And here's my Roux theme folder And here's…index.php so I'm just going to press Cmd+D to duplicate that and then…once that's copied I'll click in once to rename it…and we're going to do a page to hold our conference information.…So, I'm renaming this conference.…And once I have it renamed, I'll double-click it to open it.…Now let's go all the way into code view here.…And we'll add some content specific to this page, as well as code,…so that only posts in a particular category are displayed on this page.…
So here I have Roux Academy blog.…

Author update on April 4, 2014:
WordPress 3.8.2 is now available from wordpress.org. The update focuses on security issues and should not impact this course in any way. A much bigger release, 3.9, is currently a release candidate and will likely go live later in April. I'm currently evaluating what impact v3.9 will have on this course.
