Forgive my ignorance and grammar but got a little problem here. I'm a newbie to PHP and I want to create a custom division on my Thematic powered blog where i intend to show excerpts, with a 'read more' link, of some SPECIFIC pages in my site. My question is, what is the best solution to approach this? I don't want to use any plugins.
Specifically, what i need is an excerpt with, page title, a provision for a post thumbnail/picture, an excerpt from the actual page and the link to the actual page.
Any help will be highly appreciated. Thanks in advance.
