I dig the typography and styling in the ghostwriter theme, but what I don't like is the unintuitive displaying of a single article on the main page. As far as I can tell, this:
is the only way to get to the index of articles.
I don't find that intuitive at all.
At the very least, there should be a previous/next article at the bottom of the article. Or preferably at the top. Or hey, just make it way more obvious how you're supposed to get a list of articles.
Plus, I'm kind of a fan of the simple list as a blog main page. At least, I feel it makes sense for blogs like mine where the topics seem to be all over the place instead of carrying any sort of consistent theme.
how to change ghostwriter to show the index by default
As far as I can tell, you only need to change things in two places in order to make this work.
Next, you'll be modifying a link so that when you go back to the main page it shows the index.
You'll need to edit two files:
Look for the first occurrence of this:
For this, all you need is switch the
hide and vice versa (e.g.
Once this is changed, now when someone hits the main page, they should see the article list instead of the first post.
However, if they visit an article and then click your text "logo", it will still show them just the first article. So you'll need to fix another file.
default.hbs file, look for a line like this:
<h1 class="site-title"><a class="js-ajax-link" title="" href=""></a></h1>
class to add
js-show-index. It will then look something like this:
<h1 class="site-title"><a class="js-ajax-link js-show-index" title="" href=""></a></h1>
Now when you click on something (in my site's case "HAYLEY 365"), it should now show the index as well instead of just the first post.
