I'm an experienced PHP developer without a lot of wordpress knowledge (yet!). I have to put together a fairly simple Wordpress page in the next few days.
To get started I need to create a custom home page that will pull in content from three other discrete parts and present them in one layout. I'd like to structure it so that on the administrative end you'd have three different pages or posts to edit and the content (an image, some copy, and a link) from each would get pulled into the front page and presented there.
What technique should I research for this? A custom page template? Custom fields? Any help is appreciated.
