I was wondering how you set up a home page like you have in the demo site.
So far I have created a page "Home" that is 100% wide. I have added in a series of short codes for the (1-2-3) as per another post although I seem to have some alignment problems and I have copied it "as is".
How do you do the rest, such as the mini slider, recent tweets widget, recent blog posts widget etc.
I am new to Wordpress, having battled through RapidWeaver I thought Wordpress would be better (and it probably is), but it seems once again you have to go diving straight into the code, and when you are not familiar with the framework that is a tall ask to put together a simple site.
