apologies for the probably very basic question...
I want to create various Pages which have Sliders at the top (and possibly some other static content) and then posts from a specific category below. It seems that the best way to do this would be with Page Templates, and specifically Page of Posts.
I have found this link http://codex.wordpress.org/Page_Templates#A_Page_of_Posts
Which looks like what I want. It says I need to adapt it for the HTML structure of my theme - which where I run into problems.
I am struggling to work out how much of the code listed I need to paste into a copy of the custom-page.php of the Customizr theme, and whereabouts I need to paste it! My uneducated guesses (first attempts at playing with code for over 10 years!) have so far either yielded white screens or not shown my posts. Any help would be gratefully received....
