I'm developing a site for commercial customer, and using the WP for CMS. The idea is that customer can choose how many blog entries there will be at my custom-made templates frontpage.
Problem is that where and how to create the input for this custom data value? There should be a field at admin-site: "Number of posts at front page" and then user could enter "5" and then click "save".
I also have other issues where i would like to give the admin a chance to write a custom text. Example: Address of a company and user could write those couple of lines of text and then at my WP template I would use this specific information at (say) footer of the site.
Is there any generic solution, or do I need to write my own plugin or something?
