Support » Fixing WordPress » Two different pages with wordpress loop

    My front page shows the 4 most recent articles and also feeds from a forum and a wiki that I have on the site. I want another page that just shows the blog articles (all of them). I tried using a template with the wordpress loop on a “New Page” but it doesn’t seem to work. Also tried setting my post page (under settings >> reading) to that page, but it just makes that page look like my home.php.

  • How did you set this up? Did you modify index.php to get your front page working like it is or did you create a new template?

    The thing to do would be to:

    1. Copy your theme’s index.php to front.php (or something)
    2. Edit front.php to do what you want–ie., show the 4 articles and the feeds
    3. Go to wp-admin->Pages->Add New and create a ‘Front’ Page.
    4. Go to Settings->Reading and select the newly created ‘Front’ page as the ‘Front page’
    5. The original unedited index page should now show the blog posts like normal.

    That worked perfectly, thank you

    It worked so I imagine you figured this out but for those coming later, my step 3) should read “Go to wp-admin->Pages->Add New and create a ‘Front’ Page using front.php as the Template.”
