    Hi.
    I want to use WordPress as a Content Management System. I had the idea to split up index.php. A listing: ((http://www.domain.com/)

    +----------------------------+
    | Header |
    +----------------------------+
    | Category | Menu |
    | - Post 1 | .... |
    | - Post 2 | .... |
    | - Post 3 | .... |
    | - Post 4 +---------+
    | ..... |
    +----------------------------+

    And a content page: (http://www.domain.com/category/post/)

    +-----------------------------+
    | Header |
    +-----------------------------+
    | Category > Post 1 | Menu |
    | Lore ipsum.. | .... |
    | | .... |
    | | .... |
    | Comments: +---------+
    | - User: |
    +-----------------------------+

    Can somebody help me to create that listing and the content page? I don’t now what variables WordPress uses and how to split up the index.php. I don’t want to change the whole code. (I am used to PHP.)
    Thanks.

  • Did you ever figure this out?

    Yeah, I would love to be able to do this with WordPress myself. But I don’t know PHP. Is there a hack available?

    You should look at this:
    http://wiki.wordpress.org/index.php/Related%20Posts
    I use it in the menu to show a dynamic menu of all posts in the current category. Then I hard link one post in each category to the main page. Works pretty well.

    Can you elaborate as to where the code is placed and give a link to SEE an example of what the output does? Thanks.

    Color me confused. The original poster seemed to want a sidebar on the right, header on the top, and posts by category in the main section. That can be done already.
    However, if you want some categories, or a certain limited number of posts for each category, you’ll need to craft your own custom loops to do so. Basically, restart the wp loop (which is what blog-header does), or just build a custom query yourself that returns exactly what you are looking for (i.e., you want categories 1-4, and four posts from each… )

    Anyone figure this out yet? Would love to see this.

    what does this have to do with a Content Management System?

    don’t you guys know what a CMS is?

    it doesn’t have anything to do with a Dynamic menu.

    a CMS is like, php-nuke, or portal system I guess would be another word to use for it.

    Can that be done in wordpress?

    because what I would like to do, is use the wordpress user base around my entire site (not just in wordpress, but my entire site) that way if I do create a registration system on my site users don’t have to register twice.

    can’t this be done? I mean, I could probably figure it out manually, but hasn’t this been done already so I don’t have to reinvent the wheel so to speak?
