How to make the front page more like a magazine site - example shown

Recommended Posts

style

How can I change the homepage to look more like this: http://www.premiumwp.com/demo/star/ I'd like to be able to specify which categories who where, showing the most recent (with an auto-generated thumb) post up top and the last 5 or so. Could I just create a custom template and hardcode that functionality in there? How would I go about doing that? I know there are pageline pros out there but I was hoping to at least get it started before I asked for help :)

If you are using Pagelines Platform go into your admin section. Find Platform(Pro) and then Settings. Once you click that find Blogs and Posts in your settings. There is a drop down menu titled Post Layout Mode. Select Magazine Layout Mode and save.

Congratulations on your first Karma point Chance. Anyways, yes if that's not quite as advanced as you were thinking this would definitely get bumped up to a more serious customization. It might be worth looking into some post plugins first: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/search.php?q=posts Thanks, Bryan

Thanks Bryan. Only took a whole month to find question I could actually answer on my own.
