I'm fairly new to developing for WordPress. I'm trying to create my own portfolio site from scratch using WordPress and I'm finding it hard to get around some of the structure.
What is the best way to do the following:
1. On the homepage I want to add a Windows / Metro style selection of boxes linking to items of my portfolio, now each box I want to go to a custom page / post url such as project1.php/html or whatever. This page / post will contain the case study for that project.
Would I create a custom post type or is this the sort of thing you'd create with a Page Template?
I hope that makes some sort of sense.
