How do I put only the most recent post on the home page ...

... and still have a separate blog page.

WP 3.3.1
Atahualpa theme 3.7.3

I've searched the WP Codex / Forums and BFA for this and found a few threads, but none appear to work for me.

In WP Settings > Reading I have 'front' page set to a page I made called Home. And 'posts' page is set to my page called Blog

But I want to have the Home page also show *only* the most recent post. Perhaps with a heading such as "Latest Post:

There's a good example at http://www.alastaircampbell.org/

Is there perhaps a plugin I can use which will let me use a shortcode on the Home page and pull in the most recent post.

I just feel as though I am missing something and I am re-inventing the wheel.

TIA for any help and suggestions.



home page, single posts
