    Hi all!

    I'm trying to adapt my front page, but since I don't know much php, I'm not having much luck with understanding the loop guides...

    I want to keep three articles from my main category over my two other categories which should be listed in a two columns view with five articles each.

    Here is a schematic look of what I want in the main content area of my front page:

    Main category | Sidebar
    Main category | Sidebar
    Main category | Sidebar
    Category2 | Category3 | Sidebar
    Category2 | Category3 | Sidebar
    Category2 | Category3 | Sidebar
    Category2 | Category3 | Sidebar
    Category2 | Category3 | Sidebar

    Any ideas on how to do this?

    I'm not really into coding the loop myself either... there is a plugin called 'Customizable Post Listings' that makes this a lot easier - see http://www.coffee2code.com/wp-plugins/#customizablepostlistings

    Yes, I guess that might do the trick. I have to experiment a bit with it, to see how it handles pictures and stuff :-)
