It would be neat if the More tag could be set to operate such that for the first posting on the page the whole article showed but for other articles the More was used to continue on the postings own page. Then I could have the first page always have the full first story plus the leads (or excerpts if available) of the subsequent stories that normally show on the front page.
Perhaps this could be done by having a preference for More. e.g., More=0 --> operate as now. More = N -> show first N posts in full and excerpt those beyond N. So for my example above I would set More to 1 somewhere (in the template, Dashboard?) On the other hand if you wanted the first two posts to show completely and then you would set More=2.
