Make new wordpress loop using query_posts

<h1>query_posts :</h1> This function can be used to:

Revise the query that WordPress forms from the URL, so you can change the sorting of posts, exclude certain categories, etc.

query_posts($query_string . "&category_name=News");

This takes the current query and sorts it in ascending order, limiting the results to posts in the "News" category.

Create custom queries in administration plugins.

query_posts(array(
"category__in" => array(1,3),
"posts_per_page" => -1,
"author" => 5
));

This query grabs all the posts by author 5 in categories 1 or 3.

After calling query_posts, you can use your standard WordPress loop, along with all the template tags it makes available, in your template or plugin.
