hello everyone, this thread is very pretinent and useful. i've followed in evvo1961's footsteps but am stuck somewhere.
i don't know what code to put in home.php. i tried using code put out in codex for pages, but doesn't work. also cut and paste code from pages.php, but still doesn't work. the problem is that i only half understand (yes, after reading lots of codex) how certain things are done. i also read the loop and templates, but just need some help before it begins to make sense to me and i can do it by myself.
IMPT: now, i'm at a place where i know how to use the side bars to change what's shown in the body of the page. but i don't know how to allow the body to do all the work, like what pcmt was mentioning.
here are my needs:
1) i want to be able to link to my pages in home.php, where home is the place where i can just create links to all other pages, sub pages. can someone give me simple set of code for home.php? (i'm modifying kubrick) when it's given, it's easier to make sense of it and learn. thanks so much.
2) i don't know how to think of home.php in a wordpress context. normally, blogs pop up and that's due to
get_post() function. i suppose i have to insert code like get_home() in index.php, and wp_list_pages (since i want to put pages in home) in home.php. but still i don't really know how to code it. do i put it within the <?php while (have_posts()) : the_post(); ?> loop or where? i'm lost here.
3) anyone able to give a schema and/or code to help me through these tough times?
