I have completed a new install of WordPress and have chosen not to allow WordPress to create my home page. I want to embed the loop into an existing webpage.
First major problem: Eh... where is the loop?
I thought it was supposed to be in the index.php file created by WordPress. It's not. I thought it might be in the homepage-index.php file created by WordPress. It's not. I looked through many other *.php pages and still did not locate the loop.
Interestingly enough, when I navigate my browser to the directory that WordPress resides in, the WordPress default page comes up all pretty and proper. When I click View -> Source on this page I can see all of the pertinent code, including the much sought after loop.
Yet I still can't find the file it is in. I'm at a loss and feeling very inferior at this point. I'm having this recurring dream that my name is Mr. Anderson and there's a voice emanating from a bug in a line of code depicting a Campbell's Soup can: "The Loop has you, Mr. Anderson". Can/will someone help me locate this elusive "loop"? I want to find out how deep the nested while loop really goes...
Thanks for reading my cry for help. ^_^
