    Hi, on my home page I want to display the most recent post in full, followed by the 3 next recent posts showing their headlines and excerpts. How do I go about this?

    I am using the Sandbox theme, with a highly customised design using CSS.

    I am also looking for this. I'm having trouble getting the mullet loop to work.

    Any links or advice is greatly appreciated!

    Thanks for the replies and the link!

    I also found a Homepage Excerpts plugin that seems to do the trick.
