I'd like Posts with a 'front page' category and Events with a 'front page' category to be visible on the front page.
I'll have some user contributors that are typical users so the solution needs to be easy for them to work with.
I've tried several different Events/Calendar plugins but nothing seems to do this. I've read various discussions about custom post types and editing functions.php but these all seem to either not work at all or put everything and not just my 'front page' items on the page.
Is there any way to do this?
