WP Theme With an Index Page That's Actually an INDEX?


New member
This was central to the concept of the weblog as Jorn Barger invented it.

In general terms, something like Cryptome's page, but maybe a little less spare.

I've gone through literally thousands of themes and never seen a true index page of this sort yet.

Many thanks for any pointers!

You can pick between showing a static page or latest blog posts. You can find it in the settings > reading section in WP admin.

do you mean the page only showing list file in folder like not have index file?

I would settle for just a generic/default blog page with the usual header that then just listed the posts without that useless three or four sample lines of the text after the date/title line. Really, that would be good enough -- just the one line that would link to the interior article's own page.

Seems really simple and very sensible -- why has nobody ever done it? :undecided:

Here, go to Twenty Eleven...

Once you get over the atrocious whitespace management at the head, look where "featured" begins and defines a block. Remove that element and replace it with a list of articles, each taking a single line.

That's all I want.
