So I have a hard coded category list in the sidebar of each page. I want to have those jump to the article holder page and display only articles with that category. What is the simplest way to do this?

<ul id="categorySidebar">
   <li><a href="#" value="Graduate">Graduate Level</a></li>
   <li><a href="#" value="Interships">Interships</a></li>
   <li><a href="#" value="Nurses">Nurses</a></li>
   <li><a href="#" value="GP">General Practitioners</a></li>
   <li><a href="#" value="Consultants">Consultants</a></li>
   <li><a href="#" value="HO">House Officers</a></li>
   <li><a href="#" value="Physio">Physiotherapists</a></li>
   <li><a href="#" value="Registrars">Registrars</a></li>
   <li><a href="#" value="SHO">Senior House Officers</a></li>
   <li><a href="#" value="RMO">Resident Medical Officers</a></li>
   <li><a href="#" value="SMO">Senior Medical Officers</a></li>
</ul>

and so each article page just has a category selection in the article page cms. Been reading for hours but still haven't really found the right info yet.

thanks in advance for a pointer in the right direction

peace,
dan.
