In a static page in Framework, you can't have any text in the blogpage (a homepage is a blog page when it has post listings). So,
Since your page has lots of text on it, I'll recommend using Special Recent Posts, a plugin that will let you apply a shortcode that will pull a specified number of posts from the loop and display them with thumbs, excerpts and links. http://wordpress.org...l-recent-posts/
Everything is done through shortcode. So, since it's your homepage, add a contentbox where you want the post list to appear, doing so via Drag & Drop. Then, include the customized shortcode (see the plugin instructions) in the contentbox.
You can customize the Special Recent Posts appearance with CSS. It's well designed so each element has its own CSS classes.Go to the full post
