Full article in first post, excerpt the rest for Grid Focus (4 posts)

    Is it possible to change the Grid Focus theme so that the first article is the complete post and the rest are just excerpts (the default for this theme)?

    How about this in the Loop, where it probably says <?php the_excerpt() ?> now:

    <?php if (!i) the_content(); else the_excerpt(); i=1; ?>

    Assuming you don't use "i" as a variable otherwise, it will be set after the first post (whole content) is displayed, and remains set, when that if-statement checks for the second post and more. Just an idea, I haven't tested it.

    Oh, wow! You lost me already. How would/where would I define the variable "i" in this instance?

    Just replace your line <?php the_excerpt() ?> or <?php the_content() ?>(whatever it is in your theme) in the loop with the line I provided. "i" is being defined at the end of that line. The only premise is, that you don't use a variable $i somewhere else, but that's usually not the case.
