    I would like to create a more 'attractive' news page for my website. At current, it displays each post in their entirety.

    It can be seen here:

    I would like to make it look more like:

    Any help would be most appreciated

    General info:

    You should use a child theme so that your changes are not overwritten when the theme is updated - http://codex.wordpress.org/Child_Themes

    Since you are using a commercial theme, you should ask the developers for more detailed help - as we don't have access to those -

    Thanks for the comment WPyogi.

    I tried asking the developer for help, but they only offer basic level assistance and won't help with developing or offering assistance for child themes without purchasing a plus plan - something I cannot afford.

    If anyone knows of any good guides to developing a child theme - for a news/blog page, that would be excellent. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
