  1. 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!

  2. you mean switch the home page to excerpts? yes that has been covered a lot of times

    function child_content($content){
         $content = "excerpt";
      return $content;

    just going from memory, so that might not be perfect
