Yahoo News style frontpage? (3 posts)

    Realizing that we're going to have a lot of new content coming in waves, I have a website I should be treating more like a CMS site than a blog. There's just way too much content up front to sort through. I want to pare it down, but have much of it neatly indexed for a quick glance. I was looking at the Yahoo News homepage, and I like the "Top Stories" w summaries, followed by the title-only "More stories" underneath with Categories broken down below. How can I refab my homepage to have a similar visual layout of my content? How much CSS/PHP do I need to know? Are there plugins that can help do the job? I'm a bit of a newbie with WP, but love the backend design to allow contributors help me publish a lot of info. We just need to tidy up the front! Thanks in advance.

    Oh yeah, the site:

    Thanx! I didn't even think about that. It's not so much that I'm looking for a new theme, we're pretty happy with the one we're using - we just want to clean up the front end. Maybe I can peek under the hood of the other theme templates and (hopefully) figure out how they work. I have a feeling that I'm going to have to become more familiar with CSS.
