    Im new to wordpress, and also new to hardcore php, and have done alot to create my website around wordpress! and it seems to be working fine and has been great fun.

    I have the top latest 10 news posts on the page, and then underneath i would like to have 5 or 10 more posts, (the 5 or 10 after the latest 10) headlines just show up, with this i mean just the name of the posts.

    Any ideas where i can find a plugin/hack to do this?

    Try customizable post listings.

    I use it to achieve the same thing

    You can also learn to code that by hand using Multiple Loops as described in the Codex. That's what I did on one of my blogs, and it was basically as easy as copying some code from the Codex, and getting rid of the_content type of stuff leaving only the linked headlines in my 2nd loop.

    Humorously someone on here was referring to this as the mullet style, with a tail of headlines =:)

    i tried customizable post listings and it didnt work properly... and i dont know why!?

    I also have looked at how to do loops etc and its way over my head, i can put php content into my site but cannot write or edit. Im a designer, more than a programmer :)

    Or you can use a simple counter in your loop. Definately learn about the loop (must do anyway) and put a simple a++ in it or so. Then for the first 10 posts display the_content and for the rest only the title.
