different page layout for posts and pages

different page layout for posts and pages

different page layout for posts and pages

I have themed up my first wordpress website. I have used the index.php and single.php pages.

At the moment the blog homepage is displayed the same as my content pages.

Basically I want the content pages to not display a title, but I want the blog homepage (which lists latest blogs) and the blog single pages to display a title and the blog post.

is this possible?

My index.php page currently looks like


<?php get_header(); ?>

<?php get_sidebar(); ?>

<div id='content'>

<?php if (have_posts()) : ?>

<?php while (have_posts()) : the_post(); ?>

<?php the_content('Read the rest of this entry &raquo;'); ?>

<?php endwhile; ?>

<?php else : ?>

<h2 class="center">Not Found</h2>
<p class="center">Sorry, but you are looking for something that isn't here.</p>

<?php get_search_form(); ?>

<?php endif; ?>   
<div id='rightside'>
<?php get_footer(); ?>

RE: different page layout for posts and pages

if you create a template called page.php then WP will use this for pages.
