I am almost there, and would like to thank those who have helped me so far build my new child theme.
Now, here is my problem: I am building a static "Front page" that will display, horizontally: a slideshow, then the latest two posts written, a sponsors' area, then 3 popular articles before the footer: http://www.mulibwanji.com/ma/
"Presse & Reviews" will be my main blog page.
I am trying to achieve, through functions, something like:
if is_front_page(), then show the latest, and only the latest, two posts (I will style them differently later on thanks to the p1 and p2 classes generated by thematic).
Not only I do not know how to create this function (I am so bad at php programming!), but from what I see, this code would have to be included in the page content, something I really do not want.
Perhaps, one would have to remove the #content
<div> before including the new one for the two articles. Not sure.
If you can help, I am ready to Google a solution.
