Post subject:  Portfolio in home and specific blocks in sidebar

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

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.
