Hi all,

I had a Wordpress theme that I've been making 'my own' visually and can't seem to get the main content section to display regular posts only - instead of the boxes.

Does anyone know how I can change this without messing it up completely? I've tried stripping everything away and replacing with the 'display all posts' but no go.

Thanks, Jennifer

If I'm understanding what you want then the way to list posts is to use The Loop.

Though my guess is whatever file is producing the front page code already has The Loop in it in some fashion. It's just been altered using HTML/CSS.

Edit: Looks like you have figured it out. :)

A little earlier I checked your link again and it was just the one post no additional boxes. If there is a home.php file in the theme try deleting it from the server and check the front page. As once it is gone index.php will be used by default. :)

There are a few possibilities. There could be a file called home.php in the theme directory if it exists this is where the front page content is coming from. Otherwise it is most likely in index.php.

  • I've looked into both of those - but I still can't find just the WP tag for listing the posts only. :| Will try messing with it again anyway ~` Jennifer almost 7 years ago

Is there a standard tag I could place in the main index perhaps?

No, I haven't figured it out yet :( It seems the home.php page is the one it's showing as the main page, but the index.php looks like it's what I want it to be showing.

On line 11 of your style sheet you will find this: .post { border:1px solid #DDDDDD; float:left; margin:0 0 10px; padding:10px; width:590px; }

delete border:1px solid #DDDDDD;

and the boxes will be taken out :)
