Drupal /adding view page to my main content block

asked Sep 16, 2013 in Website Builder by DruNew (1,930 points)
How can I apply the same effect of a template on my front page only. I want to add a specific  view to my main content block only. Do I need to use another different page, or modify my default front page? Basically I want to replace the default article list with a view page with a list of new articles
Can anyone please help?
Many thanks in advanced

If this view you want to use has a page display. Go to configuration -> site information  and you can change your default front page from there.
