I'm a WP noob, so sorry if this question has already been answered (I'm sure it has). I've searched and checked the sticky posts with no luck.
My question is, how to I shorten the posts on the main index page? For example, I want each post to be 400px high for example with a "read more" link at the bottom.
Also, what is the easiest way to attach a thumbnail image next to each post title?
I appreciate any help! Thank you!
