adding 'posts' to a custom theme


i have a custom theme i created from scratch....

everything seems to be good so far...

this is the page: http://rossow-web.com/news/

You need to add "the_loop" into your theme.

RE: adding 'posts' to a custom theme

ok how do it get it on one specific page?.... here is a better explanation...

these are the files i have in my theme as seen in the appearance editor:

Design_v6 Page Template


Theme Functions


Main Index Template

i have a page called news -- > http://rossow-web.com/news/

that i want my posts to appear on....


RE: adding 'posts' to a custom theme


could you break that down a bit more for me?

i hope i'm interpreting what you said correct....but my entire wordpress site is based on a template.... meaning for each page i create i set the 'design' template from default to:

Design_v6 Page Template

is this what you mean?

or should i create 2 template pages...one with the post code and one without....and use the version with the post code just for the news page?


RE: adding 'posts' to a custom theme

If you want granular control of your site by reference to the page selected then either you need to go with different templates or add conditional code into a single template. The "proper" WordPress way is the former. From a php perspective anything works.
