Hi.
I would like to make a website with:
1) a portfolio in the home page (i.e. a certain number of blocks each with an image, a title and 2-3 lines of text; these blocks should link each to a specific page);
2) a sidebar with some blocks that are specific and different for each page.
For instance like the website http://www.iss-international.it/site/en/ .
Could you give me some suggestions about how to obtain these two features in clean and efficient ways?
Thanks a lot

Note: {$page_alias} will output the current page alias, you can an equation with that to decide what to display

1. if you really want to link those to content pages you might consider to use the standard Navigator module. Read the help (Site Admin > Module Manager > Navigator).

The tag page_attr can be useful too.

But, if it's about a portfolio, perhaps you should not create content pages for them but use a module like News, LISE, Gallery or whatever module is capable of creating a kind of list with the information you need.

Those modules will give you the ability to show the information exactly like you want: Summary view on the frontpage, and detail view when a visitor clicks further.
