    Okay guys, I have searched and searched and searched for the answer to this over the past few weeks and can't find anything anywhere for it! I'd like to embed some of my blogs posts on my sit on the main pages.

    The structure of my site is currently...
    ./ for the main site
    ./blog/ for my blog

    I'd like to display maybe 80 words of the article on the homepage along with a link to read more if there is more. Also, below that, maybe links to the past 4 entries in the blog.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated, and I'd like to thank you all in advance for any help!!

    There are many Themes that offer such an option. The WordPress Codex also has articles on customizing the front page of your blog.

    There are also WordPress Plugins that will help you format and style the front page of your site http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/frontpage-manager/ is one example but there are others.

    There are also WordPress Plugins that will allow you to add related or recent post links easily. http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/customizable-post-listings/

    What you are asking for is a change to the Theme, so I recommend you also look for WordPress Themes using keywords such as custom front page and magazine.

    I'm not looking to change the theme or do anything like that. I just want to display the latest post on my sites homepage. I have managed to do this using the links I found on Google, but thanks for your help Lorelle.
