I'm trying to convert my blog to look more like a news portal, where there is only ONE 'top story' on the blog landing page, and links on the side to all other articles.
I want to be able to manually select which blog post shall appear as the 'Top Story'. Only the first few lines of the Top Story should appear in the landing page.
For the links on the side, they should only be the other latest post titles, without containing any content.
It should look something like this:
Can anyone tell me whether this is possible with WordPress.org themes, designs or stylesheets?
Thanks very much for the help.
