Post format on front page

Hi, i was wondering if anyone knows anything about this problem i’m having, i’ve tried a few different things but i can’t seem to figure it out

i have 3 post post thumbnails on my front page, and i want them to link to another page, at the moment they take you to the blog post but i’m not having a blog so i want them to link to another page on my website

when i change the post format to link it dissappears off my homepage (as in the image, the last one was set to link and has vanished)
i think iv got two options, make the link format visable on my homepage or change the standard to be able to link to another page

If anyone has any ideas it would be much appreacited. oh and i am using a custom theme
