Looking at the template hierarchy can help you figure out which template files are being used in your theme. You can also use a plugin to locate a specific template. No fiddling with templates.

How to display a list


Each list have a unique id. Display a list by using [postlist].


I have been using this plug-in for several years now and find it to be very functional and useful. A recent release added support for a widget that can be dropped into the editor. Nice idea. But originally it only supported 10 lists. The author upped that to 100, which was good. But it then took nearly a minute to load on a fast server. And during that time the server slowed to a crawl. Highly recommend not using the widget. Otherwise a great tool.
