I've spent the past hour searching and am unable to find solution. I'm looking to create a static homepage with posts below it. I created a page, and set it to be the static homepage in settings > reading; it shows up fine. However, I would like to display my 5 most recent posts below the static homepage (preferably just summary's of each post).
Why? Because I'm using wordpress as my website, and when people land on my homepage, I need to have static info that talks about our site (like most sites). I'm not running a straight blog.
Is this possible? If so, what is the easiest solution for accomplishing this? Seems like a reasonable and simple task, though I'm having a heck of a time finding a solution.
Thank you in advance for any help you can provide.
