    Anyone know of a way to make all pages look like the homepage. Let me give you an example.
    Im using the collumnist theme

    http://theme.wordpress.com/themes/the-columnist/

    On the homepage every post has a picture and a few words under it. My goal is to create a page called Monkies. On the monkies page instead of it being 1 post the page will look like the homepage with multiple posts( of pictures and a little text under it.

    Is there a plugin to accomplish this or would this require custom coding?

    tehEpidemick,

    If you are using Wordpress.com, I'm not sure this would be possible at all. It would be possible on a self-hosted wordpress site however it probably would require custom coding of the same elements on every page that you create aside from those rendered by the template.

    You could try learning more about that here,

    Hope that helps,

    Shawn

    Shawn,

    Lol. Believe it or not about the only thing I gleaned from your post is its not easily possible. I assume you understand what I'm asking for, I think I explained it well enough.

    Let me make sure I understand your response. The way it would be possible it to change the coding of the theme to make it where every new page created has the same elements as the homepage?

    Thanks,

    Epidemick

    If you can get a copy of headway themes or similar type customizable WP theme, then you can do that and more.

    You have ready themes and templates where you can make page to look how you want simply drag n dropping elements. One from the top of the head (that I used before) is Alyeska, responsive, nice and easy to work, check it here
