How does WordPress.org work? (2 posts)

    Hello everyone!

    I am smashed by the wordpress.org site! So I downloaded a theme that looks very much like wordpress (Shade pro from themespinner.com) But... I can't get it to work the same

    There is one I do not understand: how does the headermenu of wordpress.org work?

    In my theme, in the header there is a php-code that controls the horizontal menu:

    					require_once( 'wp-content/plugins/printcatslist.php' );
    					KFPrintCategories( $categories_to_exclude, false );

    but this only makes a category appear, and no page that can be edited with simple html! The category only appears when there is a post in there.

    What I am looking for, is just like wordpress.org: a home-page, connected to some about, contact, download, which have editable content, and then a link as well to a page called 'blog' on which all the posts are! Is that how wordpress.org works? Or are all their links just categories and am I thinking too much behind it?

    Who can help me create a site with wordpress, that has about etc. pages, but also a blog section??

    Nobody here is going to do your homework for you. If you wish to oeprate a WP site - use a WP approved template, supplied by either the WP theme directory or one of the other approved WP theme sites. Volunteers here are familiar with the requirement of WP - we cannot be bothered trying to help you make another type of template work with WP. There is extensive help on template building on the Codex. Find a template that has the layout you desire, and modify from there.
