  1. My client would like four blog posts, with their attendant comments, to be shown on the home page of their site. In twentyeleven, I can put $withcomments = 1; at the top of index.php and the comments_template(); in the loop... but I can't figure out how to make this work in the Thematic child theme I'm building.

    I tried putting global $withcomments; $withcomments = 1; before get_header(); in index.php and comments_template(); in the index loop of the content-extensions.php file, but it didn't do a thing.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks very much in advance,

  2. i don't see why not, but then i've never done it. maybe override thematic_index_loop(). also, do not hack around in content-extensions.php. around here, we advise you create a proper child theme.
