My wife uses the Elegance Pro theme and would like to have two Blog pages. One just for a specific category (Journal) and another for every category except her Journal category.
I don't see a way to do this through the theme interface. Do you have a recommendation how we can create the pages with the included/excluded categories that she desires?
Thank you for any help.

It's easy with Genesis. This will get you started: https://victorfont.com/use-query_args-filter-wordpress-posts/

Genesis Ver 2.6.1
Showcase Pro ver 2.0.2
I tried using you recommendations from your post to include one one category on the "/blog" page:
I created a custom field "query_args" with the value "cat=10" on the /blog page but when I updated the page the other category was still showing on the page.
FYI: I did not use quotes as instructed and I viewed the updated page in Incognito window in Chrome.
I know the post is from 2014 so wondering if there is a different solution to use with the most current version of Genesis.
If I need to make a separate thread for this let me know.May 14, 2018 at 3:07 pm #219853Victor FontModerator
I still use the query_args technique. It works with the Genesis framework and Studio Press themes.
The theme you are using, Showcase Pro, is not a Studio Press theme. It is a community marketplace theme by http://designbybloom.co. It's possible the build something into the theme that conflicts with the way query_args works with Studio Press themes.
Community marketplace developers support their themes directly. As the creators, they will be most familiar with the theme and be able to provide you with the best support. I suggest you contact the Bloom support team.

The query_args work just fine on Showcase Pro, as well as the Genesis Sample. I already replied to our ticket on Bloom.

Thanks everyone for your assistance!
Since I am using the static page settings looks like I need some custom code to make the /blog page exclude a category. Will do some searching on the forum, maybe someone will chime in here with a code snippet.May 15, 2018 at 11:56 am #219920AnitaKeymaster
Since this has been fixed off the forum, can you mark this resolved. If you need further assistance. Start a new thread.

Hi Victor, I’m grateful for your article regarding the query_args approach.
On my Blog page, I’ve created a custom field to exclude two blog categories:
However it’s not working for me (Genesis, Authority Pro) - the blog page is continuing to show all categories.
Do you know of any issues with the Authority Pro theme?
Thanks, Tony (Melbourne, Australia)
