You will probably need to set up few parameters first to get you going. First you might wonna adjust the maximum number of articles to publish on frontpage, default value is 10. Make sure this value is not larger than the number of articles defined for your frontpage layout. Then you should specify which articles are always suppose to be published. Usually this will be the article with your homepage and it most likely should be a first. In order to do that you need to add the following line to the 'Fixed Pages' text area:
where 'ARTICLE_ID' is the id of your homepage article and '1' mean that it needs to be first. Last thing to do is to define if we want to republish the old artciles when new one are not available. To do so just set the 'Force Publish' to 'Yes'. Now if you feel like you need more control over what is going on, just keep reading. Next section describes each parameter in details.
