    Hey, I have a sports website and right now there are only latest posts on my homepage.

    However, I want something else there and WordPress lets me use a static page. That is not what I really want, I want the homepage to be more "informative" and look good. For example, there are two main categories of the posts on the website, so I want it to have like "Category 1 Posts" and "Category 2 Posts". I would also like it to have "Most viewed articles" tab, as well as the Facebook like box and some other things.

    Is there any plugin which lets me do this? I've checked a few of them, but haven't really found what I want.

    Use a static page but then configure it to contain exactly what you want, where you want it. Depending on the theme you're using, some come with page builders built in that makes the process simple, although some must be custom coded. It sounds like you need someone experienced to set this up for you, check out some YouTube videos or browse the theme support forums / documentation to locate what you're looking for. Hope this helps!

    If your theme supports or can be made to do... use widgets on homepage to show
    featured pages(can be above recents posts), posts by category/s(below recent posts)

    This should be a simple task, watch youtube or pay someone 5 bucks to do it!

    I've done it already, but I want something more like this :
    kalesijski. com

    That website is in other language, but nevermind. I like its homepage. It has all that I'd like to have.
