Customizing the default front page

Tired of the default front page? Don't worry. With the views module, you can make your blog feed look like whatever you want. Here are a few alternatives:

Standard style with teaser

Standard with teaser thumbnail

Monthly Archive

Monthly archive thumbnail

Inline Titles

Inline titles thumbnail

Full Posts

Inline titles thumbnail

With the Views import/export feature, you can have these running on your site in a matter of seconds. Just install the views module, browse in the admin menu to Structure > Views > Import, paste the exported code into the main field, and click import.

If you have a custom front page and want to share the exported view, then contact me, and I'll add it to the list.

Happy theming.
