    Hi,

    There are four options.

    1) From the Dashboard:
    (a) Settings->
    (b) Reading ->
    (c) Blog Posts - set to 10

    Or you can do this....

    2) From the Dashboard:
    (a) Appearance
    (b) Editor
    (c) home page file (usually index.php)
    (d) Locate this line:
    <?php if (have_posts()) : ?>
    (e) Just before this line add this line:
    <?php query_posts('showposts=10'); ?>

    You can set "10" to be "3" or however many you want.

    NOTE: I suggest you not copy & paste this code, as sometimes the ' characters get funny. Rather, type it in.

    Someone has a video of this solution, you can view it here:
    http://www.howtodowebmarketing.com/2009/08/12/wordpress-limit-number-of-posts-on-home-page/

    Or depending on the theme...

    (3) This module may work:

    Or depending on the theme...

    (4) There may be different coding. Ask us for help or just Google what you need, and you will find the answers.

    Best,
