Can I use Network front page grid with another theme?

Could someone please tell me the parts of this theme that I would have to strip out to make it possible to use the Network front page portion of this theme with another theme (Twenty Twelve).

I love the functionality of this theme be really don't think much of the design.

    Hiya @magichew

    "Stripping out" portions of a theme, and adding them to another theme, while expecting them to still function is no easy task.

    For one thing, you'd be porting over features from a fixed width theme to a responsive one, and would be spending an inordinate amount of time fixing layout issues.

    For another, you'd need to hunt down all the functions and hooks that make the features you're after work throughout the theme's files & templates. Not worth it in my opinion.

    Exactly what functionality do you want to add to Twenty-Twelve? Knowing that would make recommending plugins or code snippets you could add to 2012 that much easier :slight_smile:

    Hi again @magichew

    Yup, that's what I thought :slight_smile:

    You may want to take our Recent Posts plugin for a spin:

    Note that you must install the Post Indexer plugin first:

    Once you have it installed and the shortcode configured to your liking, it's simply a matter of styling the output to fit nicely with whatever theme you are using.
