Please help -- I do not have access to a WordPress expert:
1. Is there any way to see the home page Excerpt of a post in preview mode before publication? After publication, when a change is made?
2. How can I publish more than one post under the same Category heading?
3. On my list of Posts and on the PostMash page, there are many posts listed as "Auto Draft" -- these are empty documents. I have moved them to the trash. How do I empty the trash? How do I prevent these "Auto Draft" items from appearing altogether?
