    I’m not sure I understand the question. I didn’t “stay in school” 😉

    Blog posts are single.php.

    <h1><a href="<?php the_permalink(); ?><?php the_title(); ?></a></h1>

    You could also target a page with php, something like:

    if is page 2
    echo <h2>Your title….
    do something else or nothing all.



    How do I add the page title ‘Captain’s Report” to this page so it looks the same as any other page on the site. On other themes like Twentyten and Toolbox I used category.php but it does not seem to work that way with Twentyeleven since it’s so bloated. The file single.php is for he single posts.

    try and add the new code into index.php, after this line <div id="content" role="main">

    <?php if( is_home() && get_option('page_for_posts') ) {
    	$posts_page_id = get_option('page_for_posts'); ?>
    	<header class="entry-header">
    		<h1 class="entry-title"><?php echo get_the_title($posts_page_id); ?></h1>
    	</header><!-- .entry-header -->
    <?php } ?>


    Thanks Sweeper, it positioned itself nicely without the <header> tags. Would you mind looking at something else? I have a similar situation with the breadcrumbs plugin. I placed this snippet in content-page and the position is perfect but how would I incorporate this on hte blog page?

    <header class="entry-header">
        <div class="breadcrumbs">
        <?php if(function_exists('bcn_display'))


    I take that back, I need the entry-header class there so the sidebar stays in place. But now the css is out of wack on that first post. Any suggestions?



    Shouldn’t you close the <header> tags? 😉



    Yes, I’m just showing where the crumbs div is placed. Trying to get the breadcrumbs to show on the posts page. Do I use the same type of conditional statement Sweeper gave me? or somehow incorporate the crumbs function inside that same statement?
