Regarding the question posed in post #1...I have the same question. I would like to post excerpts from the latest posts on my News page on my static home page. I have visited the Wordpress Codex link, but I must admit, it seems like Greek to me!
Here is the url for my home page
And here is the url for my news page:
Can anyone who has tried this help simplify the process?
Where does the new code need to be inserted?
And once that is done, how can I implement the excerpt on the static page to link to the blog posting? Is it done via shortcode? Or is there a way to make new excerpts automatically appear in a specified area on the static page?
Or is there a magical plugin that does all this on its own?
