Okay, so I have started a blog for my University English class and I want it to be like the Oxygen demo page (http://www.oxygendemo.wordpress.com), with the "post slider", then "recent articles" and then "more articles". All I have been able to get is a regular old blog post layout without any of the cool features that made me want to use Oxygen so much.
A few people have said something about needing to do this through a "Static Page" and I understand the idea of having one of the pages (about, contact, etc.) as a static landing page, but I don't understand how I could make this work to get the same layout as the theme's demo website.
Please help me, I would really like to get this all nice and pretty before I start posting a bunch of stuff on it.
Also, if you need to email me anything, you can do that at [email redacted]
Thanks a bunch (in advance),
The blog I need help with is dirtymeditation.wordpress.com.
