Hi I am interested in my home page including the carousel, boxes and other features already included. Also, I would like to add recent posts, or featured posts (recent posts that I have specifically chosen to be 'featured' on the home page). What would you recommend? Perhaps I am missing an easy way to do this. Under WP Options ('Reading'), it seems it is just one way or the other. Thanks.

Hello, Ideally, how would you like these featured posts to be displayed?

The Show Post Shortcode plugin works for me. I have a static home page, so after setting it up, I drop the i.e. [ showposts category="1" num="5"] Shortcode where I want the list.

I'm only displaying a list from one category, not sure if you can have two feeds into one [ showposts]. But anyway, if you want to display from multiple categories that just use several instances of [ showposts} I guess.
