Forgive my ignorance in wordpress, but I'm not finding the information I am looking for.
What I am trying to do is (on an existing site) remove dropdowns from navigation by creating landing pages. In example for
about in the navigation instead of having a drop down (
about > founding in example) when the user clicks on about they should be going to a landing page. This landing page would have excerpts of the pages that were links in the dropdown nav originally. In example, there would be a featured image, the excerpt and a read more link to the page
founding in the above example. The challenge I am having is gathering the excerpt of a page and linking to it (via the read more link), and I'd like to avoid converting it to a post if at all possible.
I'd also love help figuring out how to grab the featured image but believe I could discover that on my own.
