I'm setting up my home page and am at the moment working out a news page that will display a set of news posts.
While I'm not a coder and have little experience with the subject, I have thus far managed to create a static page which displays my news posts in a desired format, by using a slight modification of the template posted under "A Page of Posts" on the codex site for pages.
The only problem is that I haven't managed to integrate it perfectly with my Twenty Twelve child theme, and the news page's headline is currently being treated as a post.
The website in question follows here.
Could anyone please provide me with step by step instructions for how to fix this?
Also, while I have removed the sidebar by preventing pageofposts.php from loading it, how come the text does not fill the total page width? I guess it's more comfortable to read the way it displays now; but I'm curious about where this setting resides, though.
