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

you are on an old release of atahualpa the current release is 3.7.8. Because of WordPress requirements, you will have to edit index.php and put the new widget area code just above the loop (line 15)

You could just use a plugin like TPG Get Posts that allows you to put a shortcode on a page that displays posts.
