Hello, i'm making my first pagelines frontpage, i would like to ask several question: - Recent Post : Should we depend on 3rd party plugin to display latest/recent post on the home page ? - Is it posibile to use two boxes section in content area (on above and below)? the same question with highlight.. i put it on header and footer but i can't find how to have both highlight have unique content Thanks

If your homepage is a default one and not static, it will show recent posts automatically. However, if you have a static one, you can use a plugin called Special Recent Posts which uses shortcode to place the most recent posts on any page. You can have boxes AND soapboxes, but if you use a plugin called Boxer, you can apply as many box sets as you wish to the page, each with unique content. Boxer is applied with shortcodes so you can place them whereever you like. As for the highlight, there ya got me. Unfortunately, I do not believe you can have more than one per page. However it may be that there are global settings for this in Dashboard > PageLines > Meta which allow you control the one in the header, while the option in the page should come from the PageLines Meta Settings on the page itself.
