Is there any plugin available which I can use to post custom content on My front page?? I am using front page which has link to other blog pages. I want to put custom content on this front page but i am unable to find any plugin.

whatever plugins which i searched gives this facility for sidebar in a widget format there were no option for manually putting content in my theme.

Also is it possible to put latest post by a particular author on this page??

You could create custom loops using query_posts() to build custom blocks of latest posts etc and create a file called front-page.php which will be the template for the front page of your site.

I'm using a combination of the 'Frontpage Manager', the 'Dynamic Widgets' plugins and stylesheet overrides to manage my frontpage content. However, what you're asking for you can do by simply using the is_front_page() conditional tag in your theme files.

is_home() would refer to the posts page, is_front_page() would need to be used for the front page. – t31os Feb 21 '11 at 16:15
