    Is there someone that can tell me how i can get the Latest Posts from my blog to show up on my homepage in this style http://bit.ly/1fiyIsF - where the selected post's feature picture is displayed, and rest stay hidden.

    Can anyone suggest a plugin or even to insert it using shortcodes? Or access to code i could modify my theme with?

    Thanks.

    What theme are you using? Where did you download it from?
    Is your site's front page also your main posts page as configured in Settings -> Reading?

    I'm using Twenty Twelve, and have set up my own home page. My reading is set to Summary.

    have set up my own home page

    And how exactly did you do that?

    My reading is set to Summary.

    That is for your site's RSS feed - not its front end display.

    Now i get your question.

    By setting up my home page, I´m referring to static information on the page, and selecting that "homepage" as my static front-page. (Similar to the demo twenty twelve frontpage http://twentytwelvedemo.wordpress.com/ )

    What i would now want is to show my latest posts on my "homepage" like picture i attached above.

    Sorry if i was not clear earlier. Thanks.

    If you want your latest posts on your site's front page, why have you opted to use a static front page?

    Is it the wrong way to go by using a static page? I was hoping to have some static content, under which i could place a magazine style display of my latest posts instead of a blog style front page. And then below which have more static content.

    Any suggestions?
