Frontpage Manager

Lets you customize how your frontpage and/or main posts page appears in a number of ways: limiting by category/ies, number of posts, number of words/c

Frontpage Manager allows you to customize how the posts appear on your frontpage in several different ways.

  • you can have the posts drawn from all categories or a subset of your choosing
  • you can choose how many posts should display (this is distinct from WordPress' built-in Reading Settings which applies to all blog pages)
  • you can have each post limited in length by number of characters, words, or paragraphs
  • you can choose which HTML tags should be stripped from posts
  • you can specify a read more link, etc. if you like
  • you can hide the category in the page title, if you wish

The plugin will attempt to make sure that any tags that are interrupted by the post-limiting feature are matched so as not to cause formatting issues.
