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!!!!
