Creating a new theme and pages wont show (3 posts)

    Hi,

    I'm trying to create a theme on WordPress for the first time and I've followed (for the most part) this tutorial, i just ignored the menu and sidebar parts, because I'm not having a sidebar and I've put the menu into the index.php file, not sure if that was a good idea but hey, I'm still learning, which is why I'm here.

    I don't know what to put into the index.php file to make the pages show in the main content area. From what I saw (or skimmed) on the tutorial they didn't really cover it.

    Any help would be appreciated. Sorry if I haven't been very clear.

    Hi juzzyfizzle,

    Why 'start from scratch?'. Find a theme that meets your needs and then adapt it's appearance etc. using a childtheme.
    Doing it like that, you are sure the basics work and you can still let all the creativity 'run wild'.

    what do you have in index.php right now so that the pages are not showing?
