    My goal is to show one category of posts to my home page, here is the fallowing of what I have tried and the end result

    1) set a static page with a home page and blog post
    – Don’t want to do this because I like to use the posts feature of the theme, making sticky posts did not work either

    2) use a plugin to filter posts
    – this only worked for me by seting my front page to latest posts, however in doing so my homepage permalink not sends users to /home not my front page

    Is there another method that is easier? Otherwise if I could just remove the /home permalink I am fairly sure my problem is fixed

    here is my site http://test.tennistucson.com/

    Thanks for helping me out, but it’s not quite there yet. It did solve the issue where when I set up a static page no posts were showing. However now that they show it got rid of evolves theme around the post, sush as the effect when you mouse over, and the color background change it does

    I tried that and it was ok, I still like the format that came with the theme. I did fix it however, I placed this in my index.php after the first loop

    <?php query_posts($query_string . ‘&cat=2’); ?>
