    Hello,
    I have searched and can not find any previous posts. It could be I am not wording it right. I have my WP installation in a directory "news". I would like to have 2 or 3 posts show up on the home page (root directory) to draw attention to the news section. Is this possible or would I have to move the installation to the home page?

    I would appreciate any help given,
    Dave

    Try this Codex link: http://codex.wordpress.org/Creating_a_Static_Front_Page

    Look at the section regarding adding http://codex.wordpress.org/The_Loop

    there are a ton of posts on this topic. posts outside wordpress, aggregate posts, posts on another site... etc.

    my preference is to use an RSS aggregator, like my CG-FeedRead, in order to grab the latest entries, cache them, and display them. You can use other aggregators certainly... ;)

    other approach is to call into WP and run your own custom loop, pulling the three latest posts yourself. That's a bit more work, and a lot more overhead, IMHO.
