Hi Craig and Dave,

Many thanks for your input on this. I have php code blindness - I have honestly tried, but I have let David Powers down dreadfully.

The site in question is - a band site that required an integrated wordpress blog (somewhat disguised). On the home page, there are two 'Quick List' sections, which both draw detail summaries from the databases.

The lower one (Latest Posts) is the one I am referring to regarding the problem. It works fine in itself, - if you click the title of a recent post (ordered by date descending) then the full detals are pulled in to the left of the screen on a detail page. So far so good.

However, I would like for the Home Page to always display the latest post created in Wordpress, but only if it has been listed under the category (slug) of 'site-news-item'. This is so that the owner of the site can choose to have a post appear in the lower-left section of the Home Page as a 'News Item', and still post others under different categories that won't appear on the Home page.

At the moment I can have the latest post appear there, but the latest post will appear regardless of what category it is listed under, as the categories/slugs are defined in a second wordpress table/recordset.

As the tables are heavily integrated with the way that wordpress works, I wouldn't know how to go about integrating them, and wouldn't want to try!

Dave - is this the sort of thing that 'SimplePie' does for you?

I'd appreciate any further guidance either of you can provide, I will pay for time if necessary.

Many thanks.

P.S - Dave - have been looking at your sites portfolio - fabulous design work.

P.P.S - Cheers Craig - yes the second record-set (Recordset2 - the one that contains the categories) is filtered by 'slug' (column name) value = 'site-news-item'
