    Hi

    I like the way that http://news.bbc.co.uk splash page is layed out, with the important topics taking more of the page space and having their own images. Surely there is a way of doing this with some modifications to the CSS and PHP.

    Anyone have any ideas?

    Thanks

    I think the theme that Theron Parlin is developing will have something simliar. A featured post with more space and smaller-fonted (smaller-fonted is a word?) sections for previous entries. If you were thinking about developing something like this you might want to wait to have a look at that code before you do.

    Hmm.. that sounds interesting, but I really wanted to know if any PHP functions availiable in wordpress allow the full use of this?

    Usayd, eragle was actually refering to this: http://www.squible.com/squible/

    It looks very cool.
    If i have a business blog, i would use it for sure.

    On a local test I have done something similar just by using the home.php template and having on it multiple Loops + recent comments plugin.
    I got a lot of help for coding from Kafkaesqui in this thread:

    and you also can take a look at 2 posts on ifelse's blog

    that deal with the same issue.

    Ok thanks, do you have a demo of what you've actually made?

    I have it only on my local xampp install - and not really finished. However if you go to ifelse's blog (homepage) you can see applied what he describes in two articles.
