magazine style blog widget

Recommended Posts

Is it possible to draw a specified number of blog posts off my blog page into a content section of my home page, and to have them presented in exactly the same magazine style as the blog page. At the moment I'm using a query post plug in placed within the content side bar which does not hold the style of the magazine blog style. Apologies if I'm using the wrong words.

Which query post plugin are you using? It's possible to create a regular page and add posts to it using a shortcode and that regular page can be as a static home page.

Please read the docs before posting. Please do not private message me unless I ask you to.

Ah, that's right. What's the difference between posts that you want to display on your home page and the ones you want to display on your blog page?

That's a great plug in and look's nice but doesn't seem to render the posts in the sidebar in the magazine layout. Is it possible to add a piece of code or something to replicate the magazine style lay out? If not I can live with it! :-)

The alternative would be to copy template.postloop.php over to your child theme and copy the loop with all styles included to another location in that file, and place it on the homepage with a wordpress conditional, but it takes fair knowledge of PHP to do this.
