I am using gallery shortcode [gallery] for every post to display related images. I almost had 20 images for one post so when i display recent posts in my home page, all images are shown and looks really messy and length home page while showing recent 3 post.
Can there be any way to limit the attached images of the post to few images with permalink to the post to show full images of that post.
Excerpt does limit the post text but does not work for images, i know.
I also tried Gallery Extended for using attributes in [gallery] like [gallery link=file start=1 end=6], and its more flexible for displaying desirable images in the post, but other remaining images are hidden.
Please help me in this.
