Change the number of articles on your Joomla 3.1 frontpage

The first Blog Layout Option that we will review is the # Leading Articles setting, an option that controls the number of articles on your Joomla 3.0 frontpage:

# Leading Articles
Number of leading articles to display as full-width at the beginning of the page.

This setting, as the description implies, controls how many articles will be shown on your Joomla 3.0 homepage. The default setting is 4, and you can see in the screenshots below how our homepage changes when we change this setting to 2:

# Leading Articles: 4 # Leading Articles: 2
 joomla-homepage-number-of-articles-4

 joomla-homepage-2-articles

As you can see in the screenshots above, the # Leading Articles setting controls how many articles will show on your homepage. This setting is easy to change, and we’ll show you how in this tutorial.
