How to fix my homepage?
Now that I finally found an awesome template to work on my new blog about organization, there is a stupid problem :cool:
Normally the index always shows all posts made, but this one only shows posts from one category.
I bought this theme: Our Magazine - WordPress - ThemeForest and have contacted the designer already, but so far I had no reply :( That's why I might get an answer faster when I post the problem here.
See the readme: http://themetation.com/demo/guide.pdf (page 5; at the bottom) to see how we should choose which category should be displayed on the homepage.
All I can think of right now, is to post all the posts in one category but than there is no need for the menu anymore -- or a menu with only one item sucks too so.. anyone with a solution?
Thanks in advance! :D
I looked at the theme demo, and the theme allows you to show multiple posts from different categories on the home page. However, each "content block", if you will, is restricted to one category, except in the case of the tabbed content block. So the "Headline" slider, for example, can only have posts from one category. (It could probably have posts from multiple categories, but not without tweaking the theme's code.)

I don't have this particular theme, so I can't see how it works, but I have the feeling that it may be difficult to tweak because it has its own control panel, where you can adjust different settings. There's probably some code somewhere in the theme that looks for the settings that you have selected, and you might start getting PHP error messages if you remove some of the code.
If I'm understanding you correctly, you'd like the blog to show a certain number (like 10?) of posts on the home page, and you want them to be the most recent posts without consideration as to which categories they belong. If that's the case, then it sounds like you're more interested in the design of this "Our Magazine" theme than you are in its functionality (e.g., the slider and tabbed content area shown in the demo). Is that true?
Yes indeed, I'm fond of the theme -- I don't want all those widgets, just the homepage design :p

Thanks for the help ;)
It would be nice if you can get it working correctly.
There must be some custom code in either the index.php script in the theme folder or perhaps there is a custom function in the functions.php script in the theme folder.
If you post the code, we can probably figure it out pretty easily.
