[resolved] Display featured content on front page when static page is set (3 posts)

    Hi!

    This is the page for me

    I can see featured posts only when a "Latest posts" is my front page.

    1. How can I set it up so that I can see sliding featured posts even if I set my home page a Static page?
    2. How can I choose what categories are used for latest postst on front page? (Not Featured content on slider)
    3. Can I replace latest posts with a page content?

    1. Modify/create the Page Template and put a small loop to display posts, but review http://www.google.com/search?q=wordpress+sliding+posts
    2. Use the category__in argument with query_posts - see query_posts()
    3. not sure what you are asking there.

    First two I understand. Some of it I tried out on a different blog.

    3? I mean if you look at the page then you see on front page featured content slider and lower section you'll see latest postst. I would like to replace that with a content retrieved from a certain page. But I think it does not matter if I get nr. 1 working.

    I'll let you know of my results.
