I want to have 10 or so of the most recent blogs on my front page, but not the full posting (as it would make a page which scrolls down forever and ever). How can I get it to stop at, say 150 words, and then link to the full posting.
I found that the answer is Edit your index file and replace the_content with the_excerpt. Stepping_Into_Template_Tags
But I am using the free themes, then how and where I can edit this thing?
Besides, I also want to add a dynamic flash banner on the top of the page to show some photos, how can I do that.
The blog I need help with is sellmyswitch.wordpress.com.
