Creating a Unique Page (6 posts)

    Hi,

    I've used WordPress to setup a basic site but I want to create a unique page within the site. The site is not just for blogging but for business too and I need to create a page with some HTML/php attached which I cannot do within wordpress. However, I cannot find the 'template' or 'home' page through my FTP. Where do I find my actual pages within the wordpress file directory on my site?

    Perhaps you need to set up a custom page template?

    The pages are all stored in the database. There's no "individual" files for each page/post.

    You do have one point on your side though. You can set up different templates for individual pages. http://codex.wordpress.org/Stepping_Into_Templates

    Because you're trying to do this on the home page you can also create a new file called front-page.php in your theme and modify that to have whatever PHP and HTML code you need.

    If you take a bit of time to look through the doeumentation about templates you'll soon see how easy this is.

    I did read the documentation before, but knowing there's no actual individual file for each page helps a lot. I guess I'll read throug again. The File setup is so fragmented it's a little off-putting.

    It's a little hard to get your head around at first, but when you get used to it it's actually very easy. To help a bit, you should look at the template hierachry and you'll get a very good overview of how the files work in with each other.

    And if you think that this is fragmented, you should try working in some of the other CMS systems out there... there's some real shockers.

    Thanks, I will :) Hopefully I can figure it out quickly. I've used HTML and PHP in the past so once I get used to it. I will hopefully be ok.
