Embed Static Page in template

I've been working doing AtoM front end restyles using css and making some basic template changes. I have a situation where the themed AtoM home page contains two text fields which I want to be editable by the user from within AtoM.

I can partially fix the problem by utilising the inbuild static page which appears on the home page by default. However, the content of the (themed) home page is arranged in such a way that including all the content in a single field is difficult at best.

Is there a way to either include an additional static page in a template (I'm currently using _header.php) or, alternatively, is there a way of adding a second separate editable content field to a specific static page?

Thanks in advance

Hi Stef,

If you want both sections to be editable and don't want to do a lot of customizations (mixing two static pages could be complicated), would it be possible to require a separator in the homepage content? For example, if you format the content like ...

<div>First block</div>
<div>Second block</div>

Then you could split that content and place each block where you want in the template:

$blocks = explode('-------SEPARATOR-------', $content);

Best regards,

Hi Radda, 
That's actually a great idea and one that never occurred to me. I'll start playing with it now and see how it pans out.

Thanks very much.
