How about a basic html widget and just post the link to the thread/post?

If I post some CSS and don't say where it goes, put it in the additional.css template.

What I want to do is have one particular post display on the front page of the CMS all the time.
Before you say it, I know I could make a HTML file do that but I want it to be a post that can be edited by a person (because the info changes) without giving them admin access. If I have it pull the post in then they can edit it when need be.
I hope that makes sense.

Then you will need to write a query to grab that particular post and spit it out in the widget. Have you tried to write that query? How far have you gotten in writing this widget?

I have not event started writing the widget yet. I was hoping it would be something easy. I have never messed with writing queries. I was hoping if I knew the post number that I could just somehow stick that post number into the widget in some easy manner.
