Hello, How do I add a feature box above the latest posts for the home page? I'd like to include the feature box above the latest posts so my users have an attractive landing page for the site. I tried to setup the featured page for the homepage but it wasn't pulling in the latest articles. I checked the forum and documentation to no avail. Any thoughts? Is this possible?

Additionally, is there a way to get the feature box not to be the full length - i.e. to fit on the left-side (with a right-side keeping the sidebar)? On my implementation the main column is 640px with the right column being 320px. Thanks!

The best way to get a feature box that isn't full length is probably to build another section for adding there. We are on this one. As for the posts not pulling in on the Blog page, we will fix that in the next update :) Ap
