Pulling sub-site content into specific pages (2 posts)

    I'm working on a school website. The design calls for a collection of largely static pages, but for each class to have a blog which will be updated every few days.

    I know nothing about WordPress or PHP (thought I have development experience on other platforms) but I got the static bits of the site, based on a custom theme, up without too many problems.

    I set up a page for each class blog but I really wanted the authors to use the blogging engine rather than just continually updating a page. To enable this I switched on multi-site, based on URL, and set up some blogs in the sub-site for each class.

    However I'm now stuck on how to make the standard index.php I created for the static pages display blog content instead for certain sections of the site.

    I'd also like to add a right-hand widget that will display the most recent three entries from blogs, regardless of what class their from.

    Ideally I also need to add a date to the page title for blogs, but not for the static pages on the site.

    Anyone help?

    Current Index.php code:

    <div id="column-center">
         <?php if (have_posts()) : while (have_posts()) : the_post();?>
         <p style="font-size:22px;"><?php the_title();?></p>
         <hr class="hr-red" />
         <div style="font-size:13px;">
         <?php the_content(); ?>
         </div>
         <?php endwhile; endif; ?>
         <?php edit_post_link('Edit this entry.', '<p>', '</p>'); ?>
    </div>

    Mmmm, having no idea about PHP and WordPress does not help. As a global advice, I would suggest you read the basics of how WordPress manages themes and templates files:

    http://codex.wordpress.org/Themes
    http://codex.wordpress.org/Templates

    There are specific files for managing posts and pages separately, since for WordPress they are different content types.
