    Hi everybody.

    For Retro Garden, the design and layout is going well, what I feel I need is a more colorful home page. After doing some research, I've decided I'd like a home page similar to this:-

    Virtual Console Reviews - WiiWare & Retro Gaming on Nintendo Wii

    Mainly the excerpts and images on the front page. Any idea how to do this in Wordpress? What plugins/theme tags would you need?

    Thanks :)

    Thats pretty easy to do so, look at the following options:

    For shorten your individual posts and display like the site you mentioned:

    1. Tips from WP codex on customizing the read more.
    or
    2. Use EverMore plugin, it will automatically shorten all your posts and you dont need to change your posts manually every time with <--more--> quicktags.

    For Advertisement management:

    You can use this Ad rotator plugin, from simple thoughts this will allow you to rotate your ads from one single text file.

    I hope this helps!
