    I am in the middle of doing a site for a client. The website is basically index.html and 3 other static html pages. In a separate folder called "news" is where I have wordpress installed. The wordpress is used as a newsroom so they can have company updates and press releases and what not. my first question is: is there a way to have the recent news post on a small windows on index.html page as well as the wordpress home page.

    Question 2: is there a way to limit the site of each post to only a couple of sentences and then have a read more at the end. Then when they click the title it shows the full post. I know you can limit how many post per page, but i didnt see anything to limit the size of the post. Thanks

    I can answer the first question in part; what I did was use the RSS feed that wordpress automatically pumps out and use a RSS feed readFroer to embed it into the html of my home page; you can see it at the bottom of my home page http://www.terrylee.net

    The second question is easier, just type in or copy some text into the EXCERPTS part of the page where you post your messages on.

    Hope that helps.
