    Hello awesome GP people!

    I want to create a homepage inspired by this site: http://hiconsumption.com

    I’m not that proficient with wordpress yet so not sure where to start to achieve something like that.
    Should I somehow try do customize the blog page or use static page? Should I create a new page layout?
    How would you approach this, if you wanted to create something similar?
    Does not have to be as fancy as that website but I like the structure very much:
    Featured Post
    Latest stories (blog-posts plugin?)
    Editors picks (some kind of sticky post plugin?)
    Email capture
    More posts…
    Next posts button (page 2 has different layout, simple two column)

    What about static page and using sections? (have not tried sections yet)
    I’m using GP Premium btw.

    Hi Karl,

    You’d want to use a static page

    Then using Sections and Tom’s WP Show Posts (https://en-ca.wordpress.org/plugins/wp-show-posts/) should get you close.

    Start with that and let us know if you have more questions.


    Sweet, thanks man!


    Hi, I’m trying to figure out how I can use WP Show Posts to show only the latest post. The idea is that I would use sections to create a “featured post section” and show only one post (the newest post).

    Then I’ll create another section that will show the six latest posts. The wierd thing here is when I create a list in WPSP and set Posts per page to 6 it will always show 7 posts. Tried setting it to show 3 posts but still shows 7. Tried hard refresh in browser. Im on localhost btw.

    Hmm that doesn’t sound right. If you’re able to get it up on a live server and can send me login details, that would be super helpful!


    Thanks but I figured it out. I forgot that I had some custom PHP code. Removed it and now it works perfectly. 🙂

    Glad it’s working 🙂
