Can anyone share with me how to set up my home page so that it only shows one post of my blog (the most recent post) with a continue reading link… What code to I change to do that? What I want is to have ONLY the most recent post on my home page then have a link in the navigation for Blog.. then that page would show the whole blog list.. however many post I allow to be shown on a page. Does that make sense?
So I guess I need to know how to do both. how to I make another page show the whole blog rather than the home page, but have the home page show just one most recent post.
as an example I kind of like how this guy set his up, he put the rest of his posts in an archive.
You can save this as your home.php and set wordpress to display this as a static home page.
// display only one post
// set $more to 0 in order to only get the first part of the post
$more = 0;
// the Loop
while (have_posts()) : the_post();
// the content of the post
the_content('Read the full post »');
