Can't modify my homepage

  1. Hello everyone,

    I just start a blog few days ago and I chose the Forever team, however so far the display is not looking exactly the same. I would like the last four posts to appear on the top of the page before the feed and before the side bar like in the original Forever theme. So I was wondering how I can do that, will it be automatic when I will start to post on the blog? Where can I access the homepage the same way I access my about page or contact page?

    Thanks a lot for your help.

    The blog I need help with is thebubblists.wordpress.com.

  2. The theme description for the WordPress.com version of this theme is found here http://theme.wordpress.com/themes/forever/

    You cannot change the placement of any element in any theme without purchasing an annually renewable custom design upgrade and doing the required CSS editing.

    Among the most common misconceptions is that bloggers fail to understand is
    (1) there is only one page we can post to in any blog and
    (2) the static pages http://en.support.wordpress.com/pages/ they create do not automatically update.

    Only the dynamic pages like Categories, Tags and Archives created by the software when we publish a post we that we have assigned Categories and Tags too will update automatically update with posts.

    By default the front page of the blog is the post that displays all posts in your blog. Though there is only one dynamic page in a blog for posts (not pages) http://en.support.wordpress.com/post-vs-page/ and we cannot post to more than that one page, we can create the appearance that we have posted to more than one page.

    We organize posts by assigning categories to them. You can create a custom menu and add the dynamic categories pages into the custom menu.

    There are many common errors, misunderstandings and misconceptions when creating custom menus and you can read about them here. > http://wpbtips.wordpress.com/2011/12/19/custom-menus/

    I would like the last four posts to appear on the top of the page before the feed and before the side bar like in the original Forever theme.
