    Howdy, i want my front page to be like this, not just one big boring article but short previews of articles with a read more link and the option to add pics/vids to the... erm... ill call them 'modules.' Preferably over 2 columns like in my mockup pick.
    Do any of you clever people know of a plugin (or feature that i may have missed) that will enable me to do this.. i want to avoid doing it all manually by html if poss. muchas gracias :D

    Hey dunno if you know much about wordpress but it's not major hard to achieve this by coding it.

    if you want shorter summaries on front page, find
    Code:
    <?php the_content(); ?>
    and change it with
    Code:
    <?php the_excerpt(); ?>
    ... be sure to set an excerpt when you're making your posts.

    This will make the posts shorter on front page, but will also mean you aren't getting dupe article content on your homepage...
