Hi All,

Is it at all possible to modify the theme in order to have specific divisions on the front page? (like magazine themes) I really like this theme and do not want to change for a magazine theme.

How does one proceed?
1. do I need to create a static page?
2. Then I would have to create widgets that show posts from certain categories?

was anyone able to do it? Any examples you can share?

Thanks in advance,

one way you could probably do this would to juse use two sidebars. Say the page width is 960px, make the left inner sidebar 640 px and the right inner sidebar 300 px. You only display these two sidebars on the front page and don't display the center area.

Now just add in widgets that will display what you want.

What would be WAY super cool would be a way to have rows in the "content" area of the site that could have any number of columns in each row. Saw something like this in Project Seven's latest plug-in (http://www.projectseven.com/products...oser/index.htm). Problem with their stuff is it's so dang complicated...

take a look at the 'multi column/custom query' template that is now provided since 3.7.5

A plugin that looks interesting in this regard is Site Layout Customizer.
