Do i NEED to make a custom template? (3 posts)

    Hello, I'm still grasping a firm understanding of how to fully integrate a site w/WP.

    On my static home page - home.php - I want to pull in the_content(); from the page I've declared in the admin setting. It's coming in fine, but it's causing some funky CSS issues. This is on a page with the default template, despite that the majority of the code is XHTML, not php. Do I need to create a home page template? Or shouldn't I just be able to pull in content from the loop without having any issues?

    Thanks for any thoughts you may have.

    You need to make some CSS adjustments. Making a home page template is not necessarily going to resolve those very issues.

    WordPress is doing its part, from what you said, loading the content of the page you made the home page, on the home page. Your part is to style the content.

    make sense?

    stvwlf thanks, that does simplify the issue. if you have the time and interest, would you please offer some wisdom on this post of mine as well:

    Use the Loop and second query in 1 page
