I would like to have a front page with static content followed by blog excerpts.
I read somewhere that to make this work you just have to create a page that will serve as static content, plus a blank page that will serve to publish the blog posts. So, under "Static Page" I ticked "A static page" and selected the front page I have created. Under "Posts Page" I chose the blank page I have created called "Articles" . However, my front page just shows the static content and that's all. I also ticked "Show blog feed to show excerpts", but no blog posts show up on the front page, neither complete, nor excerpts.
How do I make this work to have both the static content and the blog excerpts show up on the front page. I know there's a way to do this, but don't remember exactly how, and even less so how to do this in Twenty Fourteen, or through this plugin.
Thanks in advance for your help!
