The front page has an option to display one of two things: a "static page"
or our "latest posts".
I can't see an option for a "sticky post" however this must exist! :-)
We can trigger the dates so we keep the post we want always on top to a
date later than all other posts. A bit tricky, especially when we write new
posts... we must publish them at an anterior date...
Or we set the first page to be static and push the news elsewhere (or on a
side bar, which would make sense to me but I don't know if the theme can
Maybe the best thing to do would be to confirm we can have static content
(make it two third of the page) with a good intro text and a couple nice
pics and a "latest posts" side bar we'd have the news, sorted latest first.
Or any other suggestions!
