    I am not a WordPress expert but I have been trying to figure out how to create a Blog Template Page for http://ridgleawest.com/

    Is there anything anyone can do to help me. I know how to create templates you just copy and paste the original templatename.php file and change the name and whatever else you want to change.

    I really just need some help please! Thanks in advance

    I would really just like 5-10 blog posts to show up but not the whole article, like 300 words from each.

    Have you looked at this resource?

    You'll also want to get familiar with The Loop. In your template, you can specify the number of posts show up.

    not the whole article, like 300 words from each

    You'll want to check out the following resources.

    Hope this helps!
