Wordpress Themes - WP Forum at BFA
There will be no more development for Atahualpa (or any other theme), and no support. Also no new registrations. I turned off the donation system. I may turn the forum to read only if it gets abused for spam. Unfortunately I have no time for the forum or the themes. Thanks a lot to the people who helped in all these years, especially Larry and of course: Paul. Take care and stay healthy -- Flynn, Atahualpa developer, Sep 2021

I believe I probably followed the original instructions - please can you repost that link - it's incomplete and giving me a 404 error.

thanks

PS: I did try to achieve the same thing with your template, but receive an error message on that too - could you tell me which would be the most correct way, knowing that I need the homepage and category lists to display in 2 columns if possible...

1) did you create a home.php which was a copy of the template?
2) did you edit the home.php and change the '$posts_above_the_column = 0;' to the value you want?
3) comment out the next two lines - change them from
HTML Code:
	foreach ( $my_custom_field as $key => $value ) 
		if ($key == 'posts_above_the_column') {$posts_above_the_column = $value;} 
to
HTML Code:
//	foreach ( $my_custom_field as $key => $value ) 
//		if ($key == 'posts_above_the_column') {$posts_above_the_column = $value;} 
4) at 'dashboard->settings->reading->Front page displays' set it to 'Your latest posts'
test it

(or similar, I am already in 3.3.3)

with

PHP Code:
    <table cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" border="0">
    <?php $column 1?>
    <?php // The LOOP. Do this for all posts:
    
while (have_posts()) : the_post(); $postcount++; ?> 

        <?php if ($column == 1) echo "<tr>"?>

        <td class="column<?php echo $col;?>" style="vertical-align: top">
and still in index.php replace

PHP Code:
    <?php // END of the LOOP
    
endwhile; ?>
with

PHP Code:
        </td>
        
        <?php if ($column == 2) echo "</tr>"; (($column==1) ? $column=$column=1); ?>
        
    <?php // END of the LOOP
    
endwhile; ?> 
</table>
And at Theme Options -> Posts or Excerpts
choose "Only Excerpts" everywhere


Or, to limit this to the homepage make a copy of index.php as home.php, apply the above edits in home.php instead of index.php and upload home.php to the theme's directory /wp-content/themes/atahualpa332/, and set Theme Options -> Posts or Excerpts -> Posts or excerpts on HOME page? to "Only Excerpts"

is this still possible in 3.6.7 ? with making home.php and edit the code there ? so when new version comes home.php will stay ?
