I was wondering if someone could point me in the direction of a mod that allows you to display a set number of artilces from each category on the homepage. I've had a sift through the forums but not too sure if there is one. If not does this seem doable?

Update Here's a diagram of what I'm hoping to do eventually.



Thanks for your time.

ps. Hopefully expect me to be contributing the forum a bit more now I have a steady income :)

Hey, 7up. Note I might be misunderstanding you here, but in admin under settings/content you can check/uncheck "Display number of articles next to a category" if that is checked the number of articles within the categories are visible right next to the category...

Hey Ahlqvist, sorry my post wasn't very clear, what I meant was a set number of articles from each category for example...


News
  Article Title
  Article Title 2
  Article Title 3
  Article Title 4
  Article Title 5

Design
  Article Title
  Article Title 2
  Article Title 3
  Article Title 4
  Article Title 5

Code
  Article Title
  Article Title 2
  Article Title 3
  Article Title 4
  Article Title 5

As apposed to having a number next to the categorie it'self.

I might have to do a little mockup to decsribe this as it's a little tricky to explain.

Update I've just added an image of what I mean. Thanks.
