Fontfolio - images for pages

    Hi,

    At the minute I'm using my wordpress site without using any posts and just pages (just because it suits what I need it for at the minute). I'm using fontfolio and I am trying to work out a way to get the benefits of that theme (the pulled through image grid) from my pages, rather than from posts. Any ideas anyone?

    The blog I need help with is ashleighgriffith.me.

    I'd like to do the same thing. What if you were to make a post called "About Me" for example and put up an image on that post. By default the image would be the "block" you see on the home page. You could treat that "post" as a page and add to it as you see fit. The only problem then becomes, if you add further images to that "page" those images also show up as a block on the home page. I wonder if there is a way to control which images show up or if you can stop certain posts from showing on the home page? You could try starting a "test blog" and write several short posts with images and play around with things to see what you can work out. Does any of this make sense? If you can get this theme to work out the way you want your blog would be perfect for use on a touch screen device.

    To be crystal clear that cannot be done.
    Post and Pages are completely different http://en.support.wordpress.com/post-vs-page/

    Are there any similar themes that might be able to accomplish this?
    I think it would be cool to have a menu that works similar to the
    Windows 8 OS start screen. This would look awesome on tablets. Yes, I suppose you could use a table and insert linkable images but then you have to think about load times etc.

  5. It would take less time to load a table on one static page, trust me.

  6. This is NOT about themes. There are no themes that allow for what's suggested above.

    A Page is not a Post. Unlike Posts, Pages, sit outside the structure of the blog are for posting only static content that rarely changes.
