Hi, great theme :)
Is it possible to have more than one page that shows posts and to specify which category to display on each posts page?
It is currently as meeting-minutes but I would like a ‘news’ one and a couple of others?

Matt, Not sure that Oliver would recommend it, but I use the free version of this plugin to display posts on pages on almost every website I design.
It’s very feature rich for a free plugin and I think it’s reasonably accessible.
I think there are some post display blocks in some of the popular plugins that add blocks to the block editor, so that’s another possible solution.4 Oct 2019 at 16:30 #22006
WordPress can not actually display multiple blog pages by default. But for your usecase, when you want to show posts from a specific category only, it may be as easy as adding a category to your navigational menu (in Appearance → Menus you can actually add pages, custom links, categories and other items into your menu). This way you are basically displaying a category . (You can even control the .) title with a plugin
Alternative approach would be as suggested by @oakhillman (thank you, Mark, for pointing this out). You can even use a page builder plugin as they tend to provide posts list too. But like I’ve mentioned, from my point it seems you just want to display a category and so the best and easiest approach would be the one I’ve mentioned above.

Thank you both for your helpful suggestions. I didn’t realise that you could use the menu to display category archive in this way and that has doe exactly what I needed with minimal complication.
