Multiple "post" pages. But can't customize the front page
I have created my own child theme and made my own front page.
For the Front Page I made a home.php template.
I only want 3 categories on my home page. Inside I have other pages pulling post, but I was able to make custom post types, so I can pull in just the categories I want.
The "Theme Settings" option to exude pages appears to only work for pages that are using the "blog" template.
So my question is... how can I control the categories on my home.php page?
