I need help limiting the number of posts on my homepage. The four columns of posts are all I would like to be seen on the front page of the site, rather than having unlimited earlier posts underneath. I check-marked "Show four of your latest posts in columns on your homepage" under Theme Options thinking that posts would not be shown after that. However, when I added a couple more posts just to make sure, posts started overflowing underneath the columns.
I also went to Settings>Reading and now have "Blog pages show at most" set to 4 and "Syndication feeds show the most recent" set to 1 (because 0 is not an option) but these extra posts are showing past 1 so I am not sure whether I understand what these options mean (though I know that when I set "Blog pages show at most" to <4, the number of columns is reduced").
Can someone please let me know how (or whether it is possible) to limit the posts on my homepage to just the four columns?
The blog I need help with is moiracunningham.com.
