Hi all -

I'm imagining this is simple, but am not quite sure how to phrase it to preform the search I'm looking for.

I have turned my homepage into a magazine-style page, with featured content but no sequential listing of posts. I'm wondering how I can link to a page that will show all posts at my site sequentially - essentially mimicking what the home page of most blogs usually does. I'm imagining I duplicate index.php (my homepage now uses home.php) and drop that code into a new page, but am just not sure what to call it or how to link to it.

I initially thought I could do this with archives, but that gives me a text list of titles, not just the full content blog style.

Thanks!
Josh

why not create a page that is your home page styled loike you want, then create another page (call it anything - 'News' for example. Then go to dashboard->settings->reading and set the front page to your new home page and then set the 'News' page as your blog.

Thanks. How would I do that though?

I have constructed my current homepage using a file placed in my theme directory called "home.php". Is there a way I can reference this file from a page? As in, if I make a page called "homepage" and copy my current "home.php" to "homepage.php" will that be called when wordpress looks for my "homepage" page"?

And, for the "news" page you suggest I create, how do I tell wordpress to place my posts on this page? and how do I link to it?

Sorry, I don't really understand this part yet, with all I've read about template hacking, et al.

Thanks!

Well, I guess you didn't answer since the response is so obvious. If anyone else runs into this, the answer lies in the wordpress help:

Thanks for pointing me in the right direction!
