How Do I Limit The Number Of Blog Excerpts On The Homepage?

I am using the AffiloTheme - Glide and would like to control the number of blog excerpts on the Home Page.

I would like the page to display like the http://www.affilorama.com/blog page where only 4-6 excerpts display and the user could see more if they choose.

Is this possible with this theme or would I have to use a different one?

I do not see any where how many excerpts will display on the Home Page.

Thanks to anyone who can help me with this.

You can set the number of articles or blog excerpts that appear on your site's homepage by going to Settings > Reading on your Wordpress Dashboard. On the Reading page, look towards the bottom for text that says "Blog pages show at most", then enter the number of posts or excerpts you want to appear on the box next to it.

Make sure to click on the button to Save the changes, and clear your browser's cache before viewing the site again to see the changes.

Thank You Cecille

That worked!

Is it possible to say "Show More" at the bottom of the Home Page screen like the http://www.affilorama.com/blog page?

A link to the older posts will automatically appear at the bottom of the homepage if there are still more posts to show. For example, if you have set the homepage to display the latest 5 posts, but you have 10 posts in all, then only 5 will appear on the homepage but a link to the older 5 posts will be at the bottom.
