    Viewing news in homepage, using a theme with no HomePage.ss Link to this post

    Hello everyone. I'm having a problem with viewing my news article (blog entries) to my home page. Sorry if this thread has already been posted but I've tried to search for this topic and they didn't quite answer my question.

    My problem is that I'm using a theme that DOESN'T have a HomePage.ss, but only a general Page.ss. I tried to include $BlogSummary from the 'themeName_blog' folder to Page.ss, but I still didn't got the desired outcome (or was there something wrong with my syntax). After that, I also tried to change my home page to a virtual page, linking to my news page thru CMS, but the initial content of my home page disappeared and everything just got messed up.

    Help anyone, please. Any help will be much appreciated.

    What are you trying to do? Use your homepage to show just the latest news? What ive done - (willr.co.nz) and same with Andys site - andyofnial.net is just made the homepage a BlogHolder Page type and moved all the blog entries to be under homepage
