Here's the deal:
I'd like a front page where I've got two or three columns that each contain posts from a specific category. I'd like to have the first post in each column/category as a title and excerpt, and the following (5-10, I guess) as just the titles/links. This isn't exactly what WordPress was built for, but is it still easily done? It's basically a mini-version of the categories archive displayed one the front page, but I guess it involved a bit of tweaking. How would I go about doing this?
Thanks a million in advance to anyone who will bother to help me out with this.
I've browsed around to see if a solution to this has already been posted, but I couldn't find anything comprehensive enough. I know a bit about how WordPress works, but not quite enough. I've been looking into using Drupal or Joomla or something similar, but I'm thinking that's overkill.
