I'm using the Twenty Eleven theme and I would like to set up a page as shown here in the demo: http://twentyelevendemo.wordpress.com/showcase/
I cannot for the life of me get it to work. I set up a page, assigned it the showcase template format, selected that page as my static front page and then tagged my most recent post as a sticky post. The page shows up, but there is a blank area under "Featured Post" (which I would have thought should have been my most recent post "Sticky Buns" that I tagged as sticky) and then the page starts with my second most recent post. What I really want to do is to just have one or two recent posts show up on my homepage, instead of the infinite scroll, and I thought this would be a good workaround, except it isn't working.
The blog I need help with is sugartalk.wordpress.com.
