I am very new to WP and have some html and css skills, but no php
I want to create a website based on a WP theme (perhaps Thesis) with a home page that is static but contains a sidebar widget that pulls events from an internal calendar page? If possible, I'd also like a box in the sidebar where "news" items can appear and be updated by my client. Is this possible?
Bottom line, can I have a site with several static pages (home, about, contact, etc.) and also mutiple dynamic pages, e.g. one page for a calendar/events and one for news or similar and have highlights from the 2 dynamic pages appear as a teaser on the home page. If so, how?
Thanks in advance.
