    Hi Susan

    Thanks for your answer, but I think I didn’t explain very well what I want to do.

    The magazine theme has landing page template, this is not the problem, I want put the landing page in “www.example.com” and put in some place a button linking to “www.example.com/home”, and I want that in this “home” page to appear the slider and the others widgets (feartured posts, featured pages, etc.). I mean, to have both: Landing page (first) and homepage (after). Is that possible? Or need I to have installed another wordpress blog in other folder in the same domain?

    Thank you

    You can do this by renaming the file home.php to something like page_widgeted.php then assign a static page as your front page using the landing page template.

    You will also need to edit the your new page_widgeted.php file to include the section at the top to make it a selectable template from the dashboard. The rest would be just CSS.
