I am wanting to create a template page like this link ([url removed, login to view]). The template will need to display multiple categories and allow me to choose their order by category ID. For example, I may want to have category ID #2 to be on the top and then show category ID #9 next, then show category ID #1 next.
I will also need the four category styles that are shown in the link listed above.
The first category style will display the post title, post date, and the post excerpt.
The second category style will display the post title and a custom field (which will be the event-date).
The third category style will display a feature image thumbnail and post title.
The fourth category style will display a feature image thumbnail, post title, post date and post excerpt.
