A blog is a discussion or informational site consisting of discrete entries ("posts") typically displayed in reverse chronological order.

I am working on a template that displays all the featured images from recent posts on one page. And the images link to that particular post. So far I have got it to work and it looks like this:screen shot of recent images
As of now it stacks on top of one another but I would like to add php code similar to this: //settings
$column = 9;

so I can decide how many columns of images to display in a row.

This is my code so far:
global $post;
$myposts = get_posts ();
foreach( $myposts as $post ) : setup_postdata($post); ?>

			<div class="post" id="post-<?php the_ID(); ?>">
				<h3 class="title"><a href="<?php the_permalink(); ?>" title="<?php the_title_attribute(); ?>"><?php the_title(); ?></a></h3>

 <a href="<?php the_permalink(); ?>" title="<?php the_title_attribute(); ?>"><?php the_post_thumbnail('feat_image'); ?></a>
<?php endforeach; ?>

Open in new window

Could someone add php to set columns in my code for me?
I have installed WP in a subdirectory, blog/

While this remained so, all was working fine: permalinks, and clicking to preview a post or page before or after publishing.

But I wanted the pages and posts to appear in the root, whilst the WP remained in the subdirectory. For this I followed the steps in:-

This worked fine for all the pages, EXCEPT preview ceased to work. I have gone back to the original set up after reverting back, in the settings general, to the WordPress address (URL) matching the Blog address (URL). (The last solution given in

However this is temporary, I need all to appear to be in the root. Help appreciated!
Dear Experts,

I feel extremely dumb, but I cannot seem to delete the blog I created with a wrong account in WordPress.  The help page tells me to go to tools, then delete, but I cannot seem to find it.
I am using FireFox 18.0.2.

Please advise.
I've heard you should use Wordpress to build this correct? Should it be connected to your website?  Tell me what you think I need to know.
I'm new to blogging and would like suggestions for a site which offers advanced functionality and flexibility for blogs that perhaps allows me to use my own web domain name and sponsorship from advertisers but tools that enable me to have a dash board / control panel type interface.

I would prefer a free one but would consider paying a small monthly charge if required. I know of a few. Wordpress is one that springs to mind.  Any other good quality blogs sites that people here can highly recommend?
I've written a custom blog engine and now my client wants to add a "follow" button.  The only thing is, I have no idea how to do that!  Does the follow button just add people to an email list and then they get an email everytime there's a new post?  Or is there some kind of API  I should be using from some established service like Facebook or twitter?

If anyone could point me in the right direction, I'd be grateful.
A friend has a site with a phpbb message board, and uses as an upload tool for his users to post pics with their messages. It works great, except sometimes it doesn’t upload a picture and instead just prints out a big long url in the message where the pic is supposed to be. What could be causing that?

I've been trying to recreate a website and I'm having trouble finding resources on copying a certain aspect of it.

I love how the home page displays recent posts featured images then when the mouse hovers overs it it has some text then clicks through to that specific post.

I don't mind purchasing a plugin that would do something similar from code canyon or something but I just am having a hard time finding this specific javascript. I also realize that this is a prophoto blog template but I do not need the whole site builder just this particular script.
I need to develop wordpress site with forum like features where we can collect email ids and send daily digest like Yahoo Group as well as admin to manage the posts to view.

Is there a plugin to do ? please suggest.

I would like to add a search box all the way to the right of the 'linkedin' link in the blue banner part. The search box would then search all blogs that have been uploaded to the site. Could someone please help me with the code I need and where to put that code? Thank you kindly!

When a friend tries to subscribe to one of my Typepad hosted blogs, she gets a page of what I'll call gibberish and what might be raw code.

I'm guessing there's some Java or some other app that isn't running on her machine, but this question is way over my pay grade.

What can she do to be able to see the /atom.xml page she's being sent to?
After a long and messy upgrade to 3.5 I thought I had everything solved but now I can't open or move any widgets or widget area boxes in the admin area.

When I click to open one the page just jumps down a bit as if this was an anchor but nothing else happens.

Please advise.

Thanks in advance.
I have read the 3.5 troubleshooting master list and also searched but couldn't find anyone else who had this happen so far.

I have updated to 3.5 and this wiped all posts, custom post types, sliders etc. Basically cleaned the database I guess

Luckily I have a backupbuddy and restored it back to before the update but I have not clue how to proceed now in trying the upgrade again.

Has anyone had this happen? or know what caused this? How would I go about upgrading now without erasing all content?

Any advice would be great.

Thanks in advance

This might be an easy question,

In our wordpress site we're using this theme:

for our site:


I have settings->reading set to "Your Latest Post" and the theme is making us have a static front page that is made up of two pages, a (1) left side and a (2) right side. Internal pages are standard with a sidebar.

The problem is, they want to add a blog to the menu -> where next to "Contact" it says "Blog". We've got some posts already but they're being used by our front page slideshow and we don't want them to show up in the blog. How do we create a blog that shows up in the menu as "Blog" and only displays what we want?
Hi, I have a blog that I am putting together for a friend & the layout is almost there. I'm working on the design for the logo & other custom images but I just need help on one final part - the header...

I've added a custom image which is larger than the original header image, and it looks great. However, I need to split this image virtually into 2 separate images, each with a clickable link.

For example 'Image 1' needs to go to a blog category and 'Image 2' needs to go back to the homepage.

I've done some basic websites before, but I'm not familar enough with CSS/Wordpress to know how to do it.

Please could someone help me out, we're trying to get the blog launched by the end of Jan and this header 'tweak' is the last thing I need to do before the owner can start uploading content & I can finish the graphic design side of things.

I look forward to your replies & thanks in advance!

I am trying to show some recent Wordpress posts on my homepage (a non Wordpress page). I figured out how to show the posts, but I can't figure out how to show a thumbnail with the post if one exists.

I would like to show the thumbnail at the left of the text (with the text centered vertically), and minimize the thumbnail to a very small size...

Any help would be appreciated.

I developed a user subscription base prototype for a startup using wordpress. When user logged in, he has the full access to all the contents that belong to him and able to add/edit/delete as he wish.

Question: As the admin, I should be able to login as any of my clients and fix issues and trouble shoot any problems they have; however, I can not do that since I do not have their password. What I would like to have is to using admin password, but log as a user. This is sort of like in linux when you are in root you can simply can login as a user by typing "su user".

Is this possible to do in wordpress ?

Experts, please

I want to post a URL to my LinkedIn profile.

Is this allowed and, if so, how is it done?

I am trying to test if a page is the default wordpress Blog landing page..

i created a page named blog  and this is different than the home page. The $post->ID for blog is 13

usually  i could test for $post->ID, but because it has blog articles, the post ID becomes the ID the the first article in the list instead of 13...

Also, i only want to check for this page, if it is a category, article, author,etc.. listing I do not wnat these pages.. i only want the initial page for the blog

the reason is I am going to give a different style to the blog landing page, every other page (listings and single pages) will have different css
