Many people want to show the latest posts from there selected categories or all categories on home page.
I this article I will show how easily you can achieve this.
Please following code in your home page which is your theme’s index.php file.

<?php
$categories=get_categories($all_categories);
 foreach($categories as $category) {
 $post_args=array(
 'showposts' => 1, // you can fetch number of articles from each category
 'category__in' => array($category->term_id),
 'caller_get_posts'=>1
 );
 $posts=get_posts($post_args);
 if ($posts) {
 echo '<p>Category: <a href="' . get_category_link( $category->term_id ) . '" title="' . sprintf( __( "View all posts in %s" ), $category->name ) . '" ' . '>' . $category->name.'</a> </p> ';
 foreach($posts as $post) {
 setup_postdata($post); ?>
 <div>
 <p><a href="<?php the_permalink() ?>" rel="bookmark" title="Permanent Link to <?php the_title_attribute(); ?>">
 <?php the_title(); ?></a></p>
 <p><?php the_excerpt(); ?>
 </div>
 <?php
 } // foreach($posts
 } // if ($posts
 } // foreach($categories
?>

if you want to show the posts from specific articles then use following code.

<?php
$selected_categories=array(
 'include' => '1,4,9',
 'order' => 'ASC'
 );

$categories=get_categories($selected_categories);
 foreach($categories as $category) {
 $post_args=array(
 'showposts' => 1, // you can fetch number of articles from each category
 'category__in' => array($category->term_id),
 'caller_get_posts'=>1
 );
 $posts=get_posts($post_args);
 if ($posts) {
 echo '<p>Category: <a href="' . get_category_link( $category->term_id ) . '" title="' . sprintf( __( "View all posts in %s" ), $category->name ) . '" ' . '>' . $category->name.'</a> </p> ';
 foreach($posts as $post) {
 setup_postdata($post); ?>
 <div>
 <p><a href="<?php the_permalink() ?>" rel="bookmark" title="Permanent Link to <?php the_title_attribute(); ?>">
 <?php the_title(); ?></a></p>

    What about if I choose certain categories but I don’t want one of the child-categories of one of these chosen categories?

    How do I exclude this category?

    I tried to add ‘exclude’ => ’35′, But that does not seem to work.

    Any thoughts? :-)
