    Hi,

    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:
    Click here

    Can anyone tell me whether this is possible with WordPress.org themes, designs or stylesheets?

    Thanks very much for the help.

    Hey, yes its possible here is how to display a single post of your choice by entering in the Post ID
    Here

    If you don't know much about HTML and CSS you could probably just search for a theme that already has 2 sidebars, header and nav as in your pic.

    I could help you out with everything if you want, if you could offer something in return, but there might be a theme out there that already does all this for you.
