Feeding blog into a specific spot on home page (2 posts)

    So I'm new to this and have spent the last day searching around, but not getting what I'm looking for...I think. I believe it's an issue of vocabulary.

    So I ask, knowing that the answer is out there, although I can't find it.

    I've got a site(velograph.net) that I'd like to have a blog on, without all the extra stuff the typical blogs have. I'd like to import a post that I write into the main page so that it work fluidly.

    Is this a plugin thing? Or a possible Mysql/php issue I don't understand(which could be possible).

    Thanks for the help,

    Jason

    what extra stuff? you can tune the theme to your liking.

    "import a post that I write into the main page so that it work fluidly"
    speed/performance? caching is the best way.

    Okay, that all said, if you want to have a PHP main page that isn't connected to WP, the 'best way' I generally recommend is to use some kind of RSS aggregator script (like my CG-FeedRead, which also happens to have a WP plugin) to get the latest entry from your blog and display it on your 'other site'. That way the content is actually cached local, no DB hits (well, except every N hours) per pageload.
