[resolved] Limiting number of posts in the loop on home.php (3 posts)

    I know I can set the number of posts to display in the Loop through the admin panel, but this applies to home page, archives, categories, etc.

    I need to limit the posts differently on the front page than I do on the rest of the site. I've looked through the codex, searched the forum, etc. I can't seem to figure it out. I suspect it's real obvious, but can't seem to find it.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    you want to add 'showposts=3' or the number of your choice, to the query_posts function in the loop.

    check out the query_posts() codex page for details.

    Thank you! That did it, with a bit of fiddling. I couldn't make sense of query_post, thinking it had to be before the loop, but got it working in the end.

    Many thanks
