    using wordpress theme Themematic with Gallery by chris wallace

    by default the theme displays most recent posts. however i would like it to display categories and the posts that belong to those categories. For example: Click Here thats a little diagram i drew out.

    I’ve been trying but not sure if its possible. if not possible is there at least a way to display at least one category? I found this forum topic from wordpress and someone who did it but my code is very different from this person’s.

    index.php file from themematic theme:

    global $options;
    foreach ($options as $value) {
        if (get_option( $value['id'] ) === FALSE) { $$value['id'] = $value['std']; }
        else { $$value['id'] = get_option( $value['id'] ); }
    <?php get_header() ?>
    	<div id="container">
    		<div id="content">
    			<?php thematic_navigation_above();?>
    <?php get_sidebar('index-top') ?>
    <?php thematic_above_indexloop() ?>
    <?php thematic_indexloop() ?>
    <?php thematic_below_indexloop() ?>
    <?php get_sidebar('index-bottom') ?>
    			<?php thematic_navigation_below();?>
    		</div><!-- #content -->
    	</div><!-- #container -->
    <?php thematic_sidebar() ?>
    <?php get_footer() ?>

    and this is from gallery theme’s function.php where it creates the content for the index page/posts:

    // Creating the content for the INDEX
    function remove_index_loop() {
      remove_action('thematic_indexloop', 'thematic_index_loop');
    add_action('init', 'remove_index_loop');
    function gallery_index_loop() {
      global $post;
      /* Count the number of posts so we can insert a widgetized area */ $count = 1;
      while ( have_posts() ) : the_post() ?>
    			<div id="post-<?php the_ID() ?>" class="<?php
    				  echo " video";
    			?>" style="width:670px;">
    				<div class="entry-content">
    					<?php childtheme_post_header() ?>
                        <a href="<?php echo the_permalink() ?>">
                        <span class="slide-title">
    <?php echo get_post_meta($post->ID, 'designed-by', $single = true); ?>
                        <div style="width:145px; position:inherit; top:0px;" align="right">
    <?php echo the_title(); ?>
                        <img class="full-image" src="
    <?php if(get_post_meta($post->ID, 'full-image', $single = true)){echo get_post_meta($post->ID, 'full-image', $single = true);}
    echo "/wp-content/themes/gallery/images/thumbnail-default.jpg";} ?>"
    width="150" height="113" alt="<?php echo the_title() ?>" /></a>
    			</div><!-- .post -->
        <?php comments_template();
        if ($count==$thm_insert_position) {
        $count = $count + 1;
    add_action('thematic_indexloop', 'gallery_index_loop');

    i know its a lot to ask for. but if anyone can help in anyway that would be truly wonderful. Thank you and godbless.
