    Helle all,

    Sorry for the noobish question, but I am just discovering Thematic and considering switching my website over to it. I have been really impressed with this Thematic-based design: http://enfranchisedmind.com/blog/

    I am understanding the homepage points to index.php, of course, but you see a Posts page that presents the last posts in a different layout. With a classical theme, I would just add a posts.php template and be done with it, but is it possible to do that with Thematic without hacking the framework? I thought with child themes you could only replace parent templates, not add new ones.

    How would one do this trick using Thematic?

    My thanks!

  2. @Killerwhale: If I've understood your question correctly, you can make as many custom templates as you like.

    Thank very much you for your reply and the links. I have kept toying with Thematic and WP and I think I am actually grasping with what I should do - namely create a custom page that uses a specific template.

    So I would have my index.php and say a posts.php which would style a specific page called Posts so as to show the blog entries, in classic WP fashion. When I would add posts.php to my child theme and style my page with it, I'm guessing it should work. :) Simple but I got muddled with the concepts.
