Missing Post's per Page in Front-Page.php

It's not a big deal but after reviewing the video, if you are not careful you would still end up with 4 boxes with post type "work" on the front-page.php.

Between 11:10 and 11:25, Zac Gordon forgets to mention that you still need to add 'posts_per_page' => 1 to the $args array in order to display 1 post on the front page and not 4. Like I said it't not a big deal but if you just followed what he said and was not paying attention you would still end up with different results.


                    $args = array(
                    'post_type' => 'work',
                    'posts_per_page' => 1

                    $the_query = new WP_Query( $args );
