I’ve gone through the entire tutorial for creating the home page that’s used in the Enlightenment theme demo, and I’m pretty sure I get the basics of the sidebars and custom queries.
One thing I’d like to do, however, is add a small grid of posts as an element on the homepage. Maybe With a header that says “Recent Articles” and a 3-wide masonry grid with post previews. I still want to have an actual blog (article) page either paginated or with endless scrolling. Can I set something up like this on the homepage using widgets and/or custom queries?
You can add a latest post section similar to the way the portfolio projects section was added. Under post type simply select “Post” instead of “Project”. You can display a link to the full blog by checking the “Show Link to Archive” box.
