I have a big problem and no clue how to solve it :) I want to add a "module" to my homepage (static homepage, not blog posts) that will display the 2 latest blog posts in a very particular way and link back to them. The posts would only display on the homepage and not every other page but the php template used for the page is shared with all the custom pages.
Here is a quick sketch of it
A site that does this beautifully on their homepage is SEOmoz ( but i don't need that much functionality, only blog post title, thumb, excerpt & link to read more )
Is there a simple way to do this? (plugins, code you can copy/paste from anywhere?) or can I pay someone to write this up for me?
