The images link becasue this tag: <a href="http://www.levelsevenltd.com" target="_blank">Web Development by </a> is never closed.

To add the posts to the mainpage you have to use a ‘Wordpress Loop’, the bit of code dwoof posted earlier.

Yeah, I noticed that and fixed it. Thanks!

How do use the code Dwoof pasted without messing up the site as it is? Just need to know where and how (if there’s a how) to paste it. Also, if I need to edit the code or use it as it is.

Thanks!

The code looks fine as it is. You just need to insert it into your theme on the homepage where you want to have the recent posts appear.

The code only shows excerpts not the entire post. Excerpts by default are the first 55 characters of your post or you can add your own excerpt at the bottom of the post in the admin.

You don’t have to worry about screwing up your site. Put the code in and it should work. If there’s a problem with the php in the code the worst that could happen is the page will break and display nothing. In this case just remove the code you just pasted in save and refresh and you will back where you started no harm done.
