  1. Hey guys,

    Steep learning curve this. Just as I get to grips with something I try my hand at something else. In this case, the PHP is blinding me somewhat and I have nearly, but can't get this confounded proposal to work. Here's what I'm after:

    I'm trying to have a static front page, using a template - let's say home.php - that will show a teaser, with an image thumbnail and about 6 lines text, then a list of the next five latest posts in the standard list format. Like I say I have NEARLY got this to work by pasting in chunks of code from other themes, but it never works perfectly and I can't tell how efficiently the job gets done. Any help with this would be much appreciated.

    I have Justin Tadlock's Get The Image Plugin that I was going to use, but see that Neutica & Neutica+ somehow do it without a plugin. Either way would be spot on.

    Can anyone tell me where I should be pulling code from to implement this idea?

    Cheers,

    Craig.

  2. Hmmm.

    Looks like this could be a challenge. I'll see what I can do and post the results.
