I am looking to create a 3-column home page design for my site that segregates 3 different items of a given taxonomy type (News, Training Alerts, and Advisories) into 3 separate columns. Each column shows not only the taxonomy term, but pulls the content associated with it (e.g. a teaser view of each item marked 'News').
I am not very familiar with Drupal themes, but currently I have been able to accomplish everything I've wanted with my site using the Bartik theme. Are there any ways I can accomplish this using Views and without having to change much about the Bartik theme? Or alternatively, is there a way to just create a table with PHP code that pulls the content associated with each taxonomy type into each column of a 3-column table?
