Hi there,
currently my site is set up as CMS with its menu at the top. I want to keep the static pages but I want the blog posts to be visible on the home page - similar to this site

Is it possible to achieve without customizing the php code?
Do I need to third party plugin to do this?

Thank you for your help

Just create a blank page and set it as the Posts page in WordPress>Settings>Reading.

Thank you Larry. It displayed the post content on the home page.

Is there a way to:
reduce articles summaries to a few lines and add horizontal line to separate the articles. The idea is to display short intro of the articles to the home page and then show read more button to the full articles followed by horizontal line to separate the articles.



cheers
