I am currently using the plugin "map categories to pages" where I have posts in various categories which are then mapped to pages of the same name to display the list of posts on a page.
a demo of the current setup can be seen here [url removed, login to view]
What I want now is the following.
I want to be able to list the posts from a category on the right of the page with the content from the "Page Post Content" on the left of the page.
For the home page I would like to list 1 post from each category on the right of the page with the "Page Post Content" on the left.
I would like the standard wordpress functions used rather than a plugin.
Please see the attached mock up of the layout required.
