Help with Teasers on Home Page (2 posts)

    I'm quite new to WordPress and need some help customizing a home page. I have the skin built in HTML/CSS. You can view my skin here:

    I need to display two teasers: one of the About page and one of the latest blog entry. I need both of those to link to full sized single pages.

    - Will I need to be using two loops?

    - Is this where single.php is required?

    An explanation of how I can go about doing this would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

    Yes, one for the about page, one for the latest post.

    - Is this where single.php is required?

    Single.php could 'take over' when you clicked on the latest post title, but review Template Hierarchy to understand more about what Templates WordPress uses to render various aspects of posts and pages.

    Multiple loops discussion here:
