Snippet from another page on home page (5 posts)

    I want to add the first few lines from a static page to an area of my homepage, and for it to update automatically if I change the text on the static page.

    How can I do this?

    Thanks x

    Depends on the theme you are using.

    What is the basic principle for doing this though? I'm happy to edit code.

    Would be pretty easy if that area of your home page is a widget. Could just excerpt it using a plugin like Page Excerpt Widget.
