This may be really simple and noob like.
I am using a Static Home page (homepage_tpl.php) for my home page. All my blog or news info is being posted to the news section which is simply a page I created in the UI called "Newsletters" and it uses a template page I created called (newsletters_tpl.php). When I created that page in the WP UI, there is a title and post body content I wrote and can still see it in the UI under "Pages." But when I view the page, it uses the correct template, but only posts show up. I was under the assumption the content I wrote on that "page" would also show up.
Did I need to tag this properly to show both? I am currently just using "Blank Slate" as I am making my own theme.
