  • off the topic. why would u want to do that?
    a newspaper frontpage with just the news and no headlines!

    huh? I’m not sure what you are looking for, but in index.php (and I believe there’s one for individual posts, though I use index for single or multi post pages on you’ll see a set of calls iterating over the posts for the page. It begins with “foreach ($posts as $post)” or something like that. You should then see a php call to the_title(), followed by one to the_content(). Obviously, if you took out the call to the_content (and anything else you want removed), you’ll just get the post title output.

    Sorry. I don’t think my question made sense. On my index page I don’t want to display the post titles. Just their date and content. If you click the permalink to go to that post’s individual page, there is where the title of the post will show. Does that make more sense?

    Yes, though it may not always work as desired… 😉
    In index.php, you want to basically play with the call to the_title(). inside the php section, change
    to something like
    if ($p!=””) the_title();
    I think that’ll basically work. The if ($p!=””) is using detection of going to a post-page by the $p variable. allusion would be able to say all the cases where that might not work. For instance, it won’t work if you go to a daily page on the calendar that “just so happens” to have only a single post… that’s still NOT [that] post’s page.

    And yes, that was me. darn it. must have forgotten to login at work…
    Let me know if that doesn’t work, or is confusing.

    I wanted to show the post only in the category where they were posted… not on all top categories above that categories… tried several things… but no luck… pls help.

    I used a variation on the idea that David posted above, to limit the display to only show the “titles”, “filed under stuff”, and the “comment info line”. This definitely improves the readability of a parent category, and maybe you can extend this for other php variables.

    Where David mentions the test for the lack of a post value ($p) to trigger the display of a title, I used the same type of test to not display $the_content variable. If you click on the title you get the whole post. Find this DIV in the index.php file . . .

    <div class=”storycontent”>
    <?php the_content(); ?>

    replace it with this . . .

    <div class=”storycontent”>
    <?php if($p != ”) {the_content();} ?>

    This will prevent the content of a post from displaying until you actually click on a post title to read it further. Its not exactly what you want, but its close.
