I have been reading for a long time and I seem to be going around in circles. Can anyone give me advice or point me in the right direction?
I have set up my wordpress content under a specific category called news. On this page I have the full postings displayed.
On the homepage to my site, (WordPress is in a sub-folder called "content"), I would like to be able to display the list of posts in brief, then you can click to go to the news page and view all posts. On this page I would like to pull in content from 2 different categories, with different surrounding HTML code for each. Therefore, I wouldn't like to have this page sitting in the WordPress directory, as it has a different layout to the rest.
I have been reading up on RSS, but I can't figure out how I actually pull the news content in on my homepage? I want to limit the amount of text to 50 words or so (using the <!--more--> option I think?).
I have found my RSS feed link, how do I pull the content in?
Thanks for your help.
