I have been reading the support forums and have found out how to just show excerpts on the index page. I think that the
<!-- more --> option is extremely powerful. I like the idea of getting to decide where each entry is cut off. I have this implemented on my local machine. I have changed the default features so that only the last two posts are shown on the index page. What I want to do is to give the two posts shown on the index page different IDs or classes. I want to give them completely seperate styles.
I want the most recent post to be the most important therefore styled differently and taking up the most real estate. Then I want the 2nd most recent post styled a little differently with less emphasis and then a list of the other recent entries.
Thank you for any help.
