    this seems simple but i can't figure it out

    i'd like to have my posts show up as excerpts with the first image in the post being a thumbnail, then after the click thru, i'd like to show the full image, followed by the full post.

    why is this so difficult? i cannot figure it out. thanks!

    Create a page then drop in the shortcode that this plugin uses.

    The shortcode can handle a number of parameters to display posts (for example) the post title, a thumbnail and an excerpt the length of your choice.

    It will look something like this:

    [display-posts category="my-category-name" include_date="true" order="ASC" include_excerpt="true" image_size="thumbnail"]

    You can then click on one of the posts titles which will take you though to the full post page.

    have my posts show up as excerpts with the first image in the post being a thumbnail

    possibly try working with a plugin like http://wordpress.org/plugins/get-the-image/ and the function the_excerpt() http://codex.wordpress.org/Function_Reference/the_excerpt

    after the click thru, i'd like to show the full image, followed by the full post.

    problem here is to remove the first image from the post's content.

    it might be an easier idea to use the featured image (as 'the first image in the post') and just output it in different sizes before the_excerpt() and the_content().

    details will depend on your currently used theme; which theme is that?
