    Hi everyone,

    Recently i switched my front page from a static page as front page, to a front page which shows my recent posts.

    I was wondering how i can customize this layout ? At the moment it shows my last post as first post, and then it stacks my other posts below the first post in groups of 2..

    I searched for a plugin but could not find anything.

    My site URL is: http://www.nikeairmaxplaza.nl

    Thanks in advance !

    What exactly did you want to customize specifically?

    Hi Brad,

    Is it possible to get all posts in a list, without the first post being shown completely ?

    Example: http://www.nikeairmaxplaza.nl/air-max-nieuws-releases/

    I’ve been thinking a bit more today.. I finally know what i want now.. ;)

    What i want:

    I want to show my blog as my front page. I want to use a sticky post as a welcome message. Beneath the sticky, my blog roll should appear, just like on the page http://www.nikeairmaxplaza.nl/air-max-nieuws-releases/

    Is this possible?

    Thanks again !

    Use the default Reading Settings and make any post sticky.

    Hi Brad,

    Thanks for the answer. The only problem is that by default, the blog posts are grouped with 2 posts next to eachother on the front page.. i want to make them list one by one, as you can see on my blog page: http://www.nikeairmaxplaza.nl/air-max-nieuws-releases/

    You can change the settings in the front-page.php to display features only and zero for the grid.

    Open your front-page.php file using a text editor like Notepad++. You’ll need to access the file using FTP or File Manager in cPanel.

    Or you can use the theme editor under appearance.
