The tutorial I am sharing with you today is more of an advanced tutorial, for persons who know their way around WordPress already. I am going to show you how to display the most recent posts from a specific category. This is particularly useful when creating magazine style themes.
Anyone who uses WordPress regularly knows about the Post Format feature and while it is great, the problem with it is that it is tied to the template you are using. And a lot of theme developers pick and choose which formats they support and some just straight up don't support them. Now while it isn't a problem if you have never used them, if you do use them, you tend to lose support for some formats when you change themes. Which is why after much contempt, I decided that I would just write a plugin to handle it.
Just looking at this tutorial, it seems hard to do, but the majority of it, is pretty simple, and if you got the server up and running, then this tutorial isn't so hard

Multisite is geared at people who have multiple WordPress installations but each of the installations do things slightly different (sort of like wordpress.com if you need an example)
If you are learning to be a developer or building a site, clearly you would need some way of testing what you're building so that you can get rid of whatever bugs your site may have. This is where XAMPP comes in, XAMPP is a packaged development software, that comes with everything you need to set up your test server, and get your work done.
