  • marrie125


    Hello to all. I have a post page at and I’ve written some text to describe what the blog part of the wp sight will be about. I looked and the text never appears. Yet I can see it in the page editor and when I use mars edit. Is there a way I can get that text to show up only on the blog part of the site not the whole site?

    Thanks and love wordpress for the myriad of things I can do with it. I’m still learning and hope to be very very good at using it so I can help others. lol!

    Take care all

    if you are using a page template and want the content of the page to show, you will need to add a simple loop into the page template before your custom loop for the posts;

    please paste the full code of your page template into a and post the link to it here – see

    (unless you have set the blog page following these instructions – then my suggestion will not work)



    Here is the past link you wanted. This is from page.php of the twentyten theme I use. I actually use a child theme so as not to have to redo all of my limited customization. I hope this won’t reck what I need to do. And I hope this is the right file. I am a novice when it comes to wordpress but not html. I can learn fast how ever.

    Ok link follows.

    Take care.
