Is the above script can customize? can. In the above code there bebebrapa that can be set eg number of characters you want in the show, thumbnails, number of posts, post date, comments, and more links.
In the script is written like this:

  • numposts var = 3; (Number of Posts displayed)
  • var showpostthumbnails = true; (Featured Image)
  • displaymore var = false; (Showing Readmore / More)
  • showcommentnum var = false; (Showing Total Comments)
  • displayseparator var = false; (Showing Separator)
  • showpostdate var = false; (Showing Date Posted)
  • var showpostsummary = true; (Showing part this post)
