Large Headlines (12 posts)

    I want my blog to have a super headline, something like what HuffingtonPost.com does.

    Is this doable in WordPress or is it a MovableType feature only?

    Thanks

    http://www.huffingtonpost.com/

    Given the number of headlines there, which one is it ?
    (And no, it will not be an MT exclusive)

    the very top one below the logo

    I assume you actually mean "The Huffington Post" as it is the top one.

    What have you tried ?
    Where is your blog ?
    It's not complex, though they have used a flash file to create that and it is perfectly possible with valid code too.

    nooo I mean the headline below the logo :)

    it's usually a picture and extra large text

    it looks to be a regular post because it has its own brief/comments links

    i dont have my blog up yet ... i am working on the template at the moment and wanted to have an oversized headline like this. I thought it could be a hack or a plug-in like this that would do it or something :)

    it is some sort of feature or a plug-in because when another big headline is posted the previous one slides down and into the middle column of the page with smaller sized text

    That is certainly possible, though it may take some playing with The Loop.
    A variation on that - by which I mean a selected post used as the main headline - can be seen in Root's Aphrodite theme: http://www.wp-blogger.com/

    pretty much what I had in mind to. But for the not so englightened, is the loop something I can tweak with CSS or is that a PHP thing?

    Also consider http://codex.wordpress.org/The_Loop_in_Action as that is a little more basic if you are unfamiliar with the WordPress Loop.

    And as a reference for others:

    this is way over my head :(
    is there a template for WP available that does what I want so I can take a look at how they modified the loop?
