I have few questions:
1. How do I make the news display to appear only on the frontpage or Homepage only and NOT anywhere else.
Example: I don't want the news display appearing when user clicks on "Read full article..."

2. How do I remove the "read more" after the few words on the news display - since there's already a "read full article link" at the bottom?
Please click on 3rd  and 4th thumbnail:

3. I added a featured article but 3rd featured alignment is not right. Please see mis-alignment towards the bottom:

Thank you!

1. That's a feature of Joomla 1.6+. Whenever you click the read more button, the same modules appear no the next page. The only way around it is to create a menu item that points to the same article category as the articles, and on that new menu item publish no modules.

2. It's showing because your intro text isn't long enough and it's pulling the read more text that's in the article itself. You can either lengthen the article text or add the following to the bottom of template.css: #s5_nd_text .readon { display:none; }

3. You have it set to 2 columns. You need to change the number of columns when you edit that menu item. There are parameters down the right side of the edit screen to change this.
