I’m toying with the idea of creating an affiliate marketing website/blog using wordpress. I really like some of the magazine style themes, especially the MagPress theme. What I would like to know is whether or not it is possible to create half static/half blog pages within WordPress? I know you can do both individually, but can you do both on the same page. I’ll give an example of what I am looking for.
I want a homepage in which the top half is "static" in that it never changes, while about midway down its sectioned off into different categories of blog posts showing new posts and featured posts. I would also like a menu bar that had about 5-7 different items (5-7 different products) and on each one of those pages have the same half static/half blog aspect as well. That way I could advertise the product at the top, then below use some type of autoblogging plugin that constantly changes the posts with new posts about the individual products, mainly so visitors can get different reviews of the products. Is this possible?
I know for a fact you can do this with the Headway Theme for WordPress but it costs money and has a bit of a learning curve. I am not sure if any free themes offer this.
