Well first you need to create box that will pull articles only from that category:
<vte:param name="search_cid" value="ID OF YOUR CATEGORY" />
Now in order to show them only inside that box, you need to add following two parameters:
<vte:param name="add_to_printed" value="true" />
<vte:param name="exclude_printed" value="true" />
That should do the trick for you.
You can also use Article wizard plug-in to generate box that will give you what you need.

Hi Micha, thanks for that, it did worked and not, it displays the information where I want it good! but it doesn't show what I want... I may have to open a new field for that... see what I'm running is a "BINATIONAL NEW'S WEBSITE" is been online for the last 10 years and on Nov. 07 they give me the responsibility of "webmaster" I'm not a webmaster just a friend of the owner of that site... so anyway...
What I want is not an article of any kind is just a thought "the word of today" which can be something like
Wickedness never brings real success; only the godly have that.
and thats all, an everyday they will write something new or different, as you can see it doesn't require of Title, or abstract images or text, or description text...
say that I open the Admin page and on the top menu to have a button "Today inspiration" and when I click on it it only brings a little input box so I can write my "inspirational text" and after I save it it can be visible on the front page.
I'm not that good with SQL nether with the vte: of vivvo thats why I'm asking for help if someone is so kind to help please, I appreciate any help you can provide.
On the other hand I see this as a featured add-on for vivvo, many portals may want this feature on their site.
