I am looking for a wordpress plugin OR just a way to do the following.
I want on the home page an area that lists off the 2 or 3 most recent post. I want it to show the Title and date as well as the text that is put into the excerpt field of the posts. Does anyone know of how I can do this?
The closest i have found is a plugin called "Recent Posts with Excerpts " It works great but does NOT have the date. wonder if I could modify this! I know how to get the PHP for the date in there.. but dont know how to have it tie in to displaying of the 3 most recent posts.
I am now wanting to put a link to …read more. and am having a tough time getting it placed right after the (.) at the end of each excerpt/.
The way this loop works it seem to automatically put <p> tags around the excerpt and I dont know where to find that to add this snippet of code for "read more" Does that make sense?
When I put it in there it puts in below everything of that excerpt and pushes down into the next one. I want it to flow right with the text of the excert but just be a link like you see most of the time.
