I'm building a sports site which will have 162 different posts for each sporting event. (Guess which sport.) As it's being designed, the site will have a top horizontal section - above the header - which will show the next five upcoming games.
I'm trying to get started on the best way to attack this. My initial thought is that I should use "events" as a custom post type for this. Is that right? If so, how is the best way to make that new section appear above the header?
