Noobie needs help with mag style layout (2 posts)

    I'm having some trouble putting together a magazine style layout (teaser on the front page with a thumbnail, full article after clicking the link).

    I have a plugin installed to automatically create a thumbnail image out of the first image in a post. However, I have the following issue.

    How do I prevent the big full-size image from appearing on the front page? Right now I just get the thumbnail right next to the full size image on the main page.

    most mag style themes would use the_excerpt() on the front page to show a short form of the post; this will automatically strip any images from the post.
