Is there a way to display pages as posts on my homepage? Basically, I'd like to be able to see summaries of certain pages on my homepage, and I do not want to create a duplicate post that matches the page. I have some very important content that I want to feature on my homepage (with a thumbnail image), and the content is most suited to be a page (it is not time-dependent), however, I want my visitors to be able to see the content on the front page (not just via my dynamic page drop-down menu).
A workaround, of course, is to create duplicate content, but then I have two places to edit.
I thought about creating posts that somehow redirect to the page, but then, what would the summary look like, and would I need to create a duplicate summary anyway, so why not create a duplicate post?
Duplicate content is just bad, but I want to display my pages as posts on my front page.
What can I do?
