How to have multiple columns of short article summaries? (7 posts)

    Not sure how to describe this but does anyone know of a theme or hack to allow WP to show multiple columns of short article summaries such as on the website of The Register?

    Obviously the register has a lot more articles, so I am envisaging perhaps two or three columns of articles, each with a heading and a short extract of the content instead of the usual WP one column block.

    I know ... I know ... the diehard are going to answer "WP is not for that". But it is such a nice interface and such a nice engine and such a good development community that it is hard NOT to want to use WP to do such a job.

    TIA.

    Yes, it is possible. I made once such a theme:
    - one featured article's excerpt at the top
    - below it 2 columns with short excerpts, showing 8 articles
    - two or one sidebar on the right

    I didn't see anything like that in the freely available themes, sorry.

    try RAW 03
    and see it in action here

    Note that the classified ads would be replaced with your man posts,in the two sidebars you can have a posts showing from two specific categories.

    Hi. This is feedback to myself and a bump.

    I discovered at last;

    Particles, a WordPress theme from Devlounge. Its looks pretty good. I cant find it in the repository here but there is a link, here.

    I do not know if anyone has played around with it but I can only make it show 10 posts, the demo has many more.

    There is a support topic but it has been closed now.

    Does anyone know how to make it show more?

    TIA

    Ah ... I worked it out myself. The theme still adheres to the Settings > Reading Settings preference.
