Twenty Eleven
More posts on Showcase Page? (8 posts)

    I'm toying with using the Showcase Page so I can feature an Author every week with interviews etc.

    But I want more than just one image/text to show up below the featured post. I would like to have for the next few posts, the image and text, rather than just a list of what posts there are.

    Is there a way to do this??

    For instance I want the posts that follow say "Blood & Sawdust" to look the same as "Blood & Sawdust" on the page.

    http://www.topoftheheapreviews.com is the site.

    Thanks!

    start by creating a child theme of Twenty Eleven;
    http://codex.wordpress.org/Child_Themes

    then make a copy of showcase.php and save it into the child theme's folder;

    edit this section: http://pastebin.com/j833ntpb

    possible edited section: http://pastebin.com/RaBtaeJF

    (untested)

    Hmm....I don't understand.

    I'm using the web only interface. Can I do it that way?

    I never got the WordPress Software working.

    you were asking how to customize a WordPress.org powered site - that needs a certain amount of programming knowledge;

    you will need to use FTP http://codex.wordpress.org/FTP_Clients to create the child theme; and you will need to go to dashboard - appearance - editor to edit the templates; http://codex.wordpress.org/Editing_Files

    I never got the WordPress Software working.

    how did you start the linked site?

    I had bought a domain and they moved it from joehempel.wordpress.com

    I'll look at the links provided and see if I can't muddle through it.

    Thank you for the links!!

    Okay figured out how to activate it, but I still can't get it working. I downloaded a basic child-theme and used that...should I not have done that?

    http://www.topoftheheapreviews.com

    Everything looks okay until I add the showcase.php in it using the stuff above....please help...please?

    Thanks everyone!
