Hi, I've read a lot of articles on making wordpress into a cms and I wanted to try it coz joomla is a bit hard to use for a newbie. I also like the wordpress blog better. I want to put some rss feeds on the front page and a few blog posts.
This is what I've done:
1. I added a new page with a home.php template with a slug name - "home".
2. Then in this same page, I included some URLs to the RSS using rss aggregator plugins.
3. In the home.php, I added these:
b. query_posts('p=1'); //using the postid to show the first post
query_posts('name=blog'); //using the post slug to show the first post
I can't seem to get it to work though. I got the page to show the RSS, but not the blog posts... it keeps saying not found.
Is it better if I just do a static front page and including there the rss feeds? http://codex.wordpress.org/Creating_a_Static_Front_Page
I'd rather have a page though which I can include in the home so it'll be easier to edit.
Thanks in advance!
