    Hi Everyone,

    I’ve just purchased Minimum 2.0 for a new business website. I love the look of the theme, but I need to change the homepage a bit.

    Out of the box, the Minimum theme shows a grid of the latest blog posts just under the four social media icons. I want to remove this grid and replace it with a single post, which I would like to see displayed in full, not as an excerpt.

    What’s the easiest way to do this?

    Many thanks!

    Best regards,

    Robert Grossman

    The simplest way would be to replace the grid loop with a new sidebar so you can use a featured page widget.

    I am having the exact same issue as Robert.  I would like to use a static page but keep the featured image on my home page.

    What about using an include command in home.php, like:  include(“front.html”); ?

    Yes, you could do that as well.

    @bpcallahan

    create an home-static.php file in your theme folder.
    Add here your html code.

    Then, in home.php use:

    get_template_part( 'home', 'static' );

    see: http://codex.wordpress.org/Function_Reference/get_template_part

    Could you explain this method a bit more? I’m after the same thing as Robert – a Minimum homepage with the large image and then the most recent full post below that. I’m close and I’ve tried using Genesis Grid but it’s not quite there. Thank you.
