Please Help! ;) - Making all my pages look the same. (28 posts)

    This may be a really really dumb question...
    I am using an edited theme.
    http://mytwistedlogic.com
    I want my additional pages (non wordpress pages) to look the same (ie. the "me" page, "pics" page, etc.) as the main page.
    Can someone tell me how to do this? I have tried a lot of different things and nothing is working! Can you give me a link or let me know how its done? Thanks!

    If your theme has a page.php, you can edit out the parts you don't want to show, such as the category, etc... if your theme doesn't have a page.php, you can easily make one by copying the index.php and renaming it to page.php.

    there is a pages.php in the theme directory...

    Then you need a page.php template (aka default Page template) that looks differently. If your theme's author didn't make one - contact and bug him/her to do it :)
    Or, you can save the index.php as page.php and edit out what you don't need (e.g. date, comments etc.) until it looks like you want it.

    Put the Loop in your page.php. It will be similar to what is in the index file (or any number of other theme page.php files):

    <?php if (have_posts()) : while (have_posts()) : the_post(); ?>

    Blah-Blah-Blah

    <?php endwhile; endif; ?>

    Make an HTML wetever you want and paste in content box of post, like a post.

    this is what I have in the page.php, is there something else that I need to add?


    <?php get_header(); ?>

    <!-- begin content -->

    <div id="content" class="narrowcolumn">

    </div>

    <!--end content -->

    <?php get_sidebar(); ?>

    <?php get_footer(); ?>

    Put in the Loop, Fruit ;-)

    Yes, you deleted the whole Loop. As Beel said above, copy

    <?php if (have_posts()) : while (have_posts()) : the_post(); ?>

    Blah-Blah-Blah

    <?php endwhile; endif; ?>

    from the index again, and place after the <div id="content" class="narrowcolumn">. Then you can start deleting the items you don't want, but only do one item at a time, so you can see what it's doing.
