    I'm plan on using this theme
    http://www.freewpthemes.net/preview/innovation
    http://www.freecsstemplates.org/preview/innovation

    I'd like to know if there's a way to limit the posts appearing on the right side. 9 Posts keeps on appearing at the right side. 9 previous post are very long which tends to drag down the sidebar at the very bottom. I want to limit it to 3 or 4 posts.

    And how to change the limit of words that are showing on each previous post at the right side? 51 words are always showing in each post I want to change it to like 21 words like the one showing in the preview.

    I can't seem to find those numbers when I search in the codes. Hope anyone can help me on this and tell me which code to change.

    Ok I finally figured out how to limit the number of post shown. I just needed to know how to limit the number of words in excerpt.

    Hi samboll,

    Thanks for the reply

    Then the explicit excerpt you have entered in the Administration > Write > Post SubPanel will appear, or the first 55 words of the post's content.

    Can I change the default first 55 words? I want to change the default to like 20-30 words.

    Hi there, did you ever figure out how to customise things so we can choose the number of words in an excerpt for the home page? I need to to the same. In some excerpts on my home page I only want about 15 words, others 20 and others 40. Have been looking for ages to find a way of doing this but no luck so far.
