    I am a bit of a newbie to WordPress but am mostly getting on alright!!
    However I have seen pages where excerpts of the first 3 posts or so of the blog have been posted onto the static home page as well as the blog to provide a preview and link into the blog and other sections of the site.

    However I have no idea how to do this and on the support and forums etc there seems to be very conflicting advice about how this is best done so I am looking for a definitive answer/plug in etc!

    Please be kind and make it as easy to understand as poss as i am new!!!!

    You would need to:
    1. configure your site to use a static front page
    2. Create a custom template for your font page that incorporated either a modified Loop or multiple Loops.

    There are several themes that will do that as well. If you go to the themes section of your dashboard and search by keyword or term and use static home page or excerpt, etc., you should find something. Hope that helps! :)
