    This code gives you posts from a category, notice category ids in the arrugments.

    
    $getposts = get_posts( array( 'category__in' => '1, 2', 'numberposts' => 5 ) );
        
    if( $getposts ){
        $display = '';
        $display .= '<ul>';
        foreach( $getposts as $post ) {
        setup_postdata($post);
        $display .= "<li><a href=\"" . get_permalink() . "\>" . get_the_title() . "</a></li>";
    }
        $display .= '</ul>';
        wp_reset_postdata();
        echo $display;
        }//

    Hi there,
    Thanks for the quick reply.
    Quick point though; I don't have "posts" in categories. I have made categories in pages. And I just want to show my 5 main categories in the footer.
    So, how can I display those with this code?
    Also, quick question: where do I place this code? which file?

    Kindly advise.
    Thanks!

    My bad! Actually, I made pages only. But since in my website layout, I have named those pages as my categories - so I ended up saying the same here. I apologize.
    Yes. So technically there are 5 pages that I want to mention in the footer under "Categories". I went into "Appearance" - "Menu" and add these 5 pages in "footer menu" under categories there as well .. but it doesn't display on the website.
    I hope, am not confusing you.
    Let me know, please!

    Hi @salmanshafiq:

    Thanks for your guidance.

    I have created the menu for the category pages and displayed the menu in the footer as well. But, the way I want to display is: after categories - the 5 pages (Gas Detection etc) needs to align little right so the user see these pages as part of the categories.
    For your reference:

    Kindly advise, how can I do this.
    Thanks & Regards,
    Rashida H.

    "Category" Free plugin is available - you can manage category with Image also , then at footer.php- using the custom query- you can call the category
