Formatted Custom Posts on Front Page (1 post)

    I want to modify the index (?) page so it will display properly formatted versions of a custom post type I created, in addition to normal posts.

    Here is what I have done so far:

    • I created a custom post type called "site-review" which contains some custom fields.
    • I created a template called "single-site-review.php" and it does a nice job of displaying a single "site-review" post.

    Now how do I make my site review posts show up on the WordPress front page properly formatted?

    Will the index page loop automatically look for a template for my "site-review" posts?

    Will it use the "single-site-review.php" template, or do I need to create a template with a different name?

    Also -- did I use the correct terminology in asking this question?

    Is there a correct WordPress term for pages that show multiple posts the way the WordPress front page does, and is there a more accurate term than "front page"?
