1. I think most of the part can be customized using WP itself I guess. Is there any special plugin which customizes homepage ?
The text will be always same, so there is some setting in WP which can be set to show a certain post always on homepage.
How to add custom google adsense enabled search in sidebar ?
Use a HTML on homepage & install WP in sub folder like xyz.com/update
Which one will be better ?
Thanks in advance
