How to make multiple pieces of content on one page editable in the wp-admain.

Im creating a custom theme and I want a couple of content boxes on the front page to be editable, through the admin area. I have no idea how to even approach this issues. Is it possible with custom ui and advanced custom fields?

Im still very new to Wordpress theme development :P

Thanks!

Depends on what you want to put there. Often times widget areas are used for this type of thing.

Hey Zac!

Thanks for the quick response. Well for my case it is a simple e-commerce site, and there is multiple places of text that describe the item for sale. The text is in 2 columns in the center of the page. Do you think widgets would be a best fit for that? I also might try out the foundation shortcode plugin, since it was built with foundation.

Thanks for the advice!

Loved to new theme development course...I hope to post my finished project to the treehouse forum :D
