You can view the home page with the content in place, but right now the left column elements are not editable in the admin:
I looked at a lot of plug-ins like Flutter, The Other Content and Page.ly MultiEdit. I tried Page.ly, and it works, but only in Visual Editor mode, not HTML mode. It also required making the home page a Page with a custom template and then my posts didn't show up anymore and there was a main content area that I don't need (or want content to show up in).
Any ideas? Has anyone used a plug-in that will allow for all of these requirements?
