My customer wants to add an excerpt from a page (not a post) to the home page. I have a plugin that creates an excerpt on a page, but I'm quite sure where to add this on the theme. They want it just about the large featured post image.
My guess would be the best place would be in the index.php file, before the pad-group div.
My next question is, what's the best way to do this? My guess is that it's very simple, but my PHP skills are not too great. I'm not worried about styling at this point - just getting the excerpt in there. No images or anything - just the excerpt text.
(and yes, I am working with a child theme!!!)
