How to Display posts on a Certain Page (7 posts)

    Hi there,

    I want to know how to display a certain number of latest posts upon a page.
    For example, I have my usual News page that displays all my posts but I also want to display around 5 of my latest posts on my static Front Page so my visitors can see the top 5 latest articles without having to click through my website.

    I don't however want to get rid of my static Front Page as I want it to display a welcoming paragraph and then the top 5 posts underneath.

    Is there anyway to do this without having to remove my static front page or redirecting it to the news page?

    Just to ask,
    Am I posting this in the right section?
    and also, this is fairly urgent so any help is much appreciated.

    Did you try this:


    It worked form me in a template and I displayed them in an ordered list.

    Or, in my case, for a static homepage effect, I made my original "Welcome" post a sticky for the front page. And all the new posts appear under it.

    You actually can do that using short codes. See this site.

    In the wordpress codex


    Scroll done there is a section on A Page of Posts, lets you include posts on your pages.
