Changing the blog post to look like the archive page format (2 posts)

    Hi,

    Great theme and some interesting articles on your site, I like the 5+ theme frameworks and brought some good things to my attention.
    I have made a few alterations already following some of your post on your homepage, but wanted to make some extra changes. I am ok with HTML and CSS, and reading up on PHP but it's still a bit of mystery to me trying to find the HTML inside the PHP!

    I really like the the way the archive page displays latest posts, and wondering how I can make the blogs page look the same?

    This may not be possible as well but I would also like to have 2 pages displaying the blog, 1 as a gallery format like I currently have and the other with all my latest news/blog? (Probably easier to have a blog page as normal and then a custom slider I guess for the gallery)

    My website is http://www.scranney.co.uk

    Thanks,

    Ant

    Hi Daniel,

    I am sure you are very busy and really just after a few pointers, also see you have mentioned that certain features will be in the next release of Minimatica, so keen to not hack around with the code too much if the release is due sometime soon?

    I have made a few tweaks myself now on the CSS side, but more importantly regarding the question in my original post.

    Basically I have used the Archive page and created a permanent link to this via the main menu, then deleted a little PHP code that inserted the date information, and renamed the 'Archive for' text 'to News-Blog'. Not the best way to do this but gives the desired effect for now.

    Anyway if nothing else if anyone likes some of the styling I have made on the blog feed or anywhere else, drop me a line and I will happily supply my style.css file which I have almost gone through now and comment of what some of the code does.

    Cheers,

    Ant
