I’m building a website for a tourist information office with Pinboard theme (http://www.prolocosantacroce.it/blog but it’s still under heavy construction).
I would like to have a static frontpage with a slider on the top and a grid of 4 “static posts” underneath that I can select from existing ones (or maybe creating 4 boxes that look like posts in a grid).
I created a static page and made it the landing page. The slider is already there.
What I want to accomplish is a static front page with 4 pins/boxes/posts-in-a-grid inside the content similar to other themes’ front page (like this one: http://www.staffolinjazz.it/). The real blog would be on a secondary page, accessible from menu.
If I use the boxes plugin, they will appear in all the other pages, which I don’t want, and also, they are not inside the page content, so I get a small blank page under the boxes.
A workaround could be to use the regular full-width blog page as a the landing page, displaying not all the posts, but only the 4 I want, the others being accessible through the categories in the menu… I don’t know if that’s possible, though.
Any suggestion is appreciated!
