How to split content and posts (Busy Bee theme) (5 posts)

    Hi,

    I'm working on a site right now ( http://www.chillhop.com ).
    I'm using the Busy Bee theme from Woothemes.
    I want to be able to have both content and posts on 1 page. I searched the internet already, and any kind of code (custom template) that would do this, would screw up the formatting of my posts to the point where I could not do anything with it. Any kind of plugin doesn't show my posts in the format they are shown on the front page.

    I know it's possible, seeing I was able to get my Featured Article slider up there with my posts in the home page with the help of a special option in the settings of the slider itself.

    However, I just can't believe there isn't a simple workaround to be able to have your own content and beneath that your posts (from a certain category, but that's extra), in a box or something.

    I haven't found a decent plugin that would format the posts as they would normally be formatted, but if someone thinks they have one, I'm more than open for it.

    I am desperate here, and I hope I'm overlooking something obvious and someone can help me out here. Thanks! :)

  2. Sorry, but you're using a premium/paid theme. It's best to go to the support site where you bought the theme http://www.woothemes.com/support/ for help with customizations and issues. These forums are for themes available in the WordPress theme directory at wordpress.org/extend/themes/.

    However, I think this is a general problem, as I had the same with the normal twenty twelve theme which I used, it would just format it all wrong. I will try on the wooforums as well though, thanks. :-)

  4. However, I think this is a general problem....

    It's not a general problem; all themes are different in terms of CSS and HTML, and Woo Themes uses a framework for their themes, completly different than any WP default theme.

    Outside of the frameworks, use Firebug with Firefox, or use the developer tools in Chrome or Safari or IE to see what's loading on your site and how to work with and change the CSS and HTML.

    this is a general problem

    the 'general' part of the problem is solved with the links which you have possibly already reviewed:

    http://codex.wordpress.org/Pages#Creating_Your_Own_Page_Templates
    http://codex.wordpress.org/The_Loop
    http://codex.wordpress.org/Class_Reference/WP_Query

    any kind of code (custom template) that would do this, would screw up the formatting of my posts

    that is the specific part for which you need to contact the developer of your theme.
