Excerpts on all posts after first

  • I am not sure if this is possible without coding in the loop to have all of the posts after the most recent show as excerpt?

    That is:

    First post: full text
    Second post: excerpt only
    third post: excerpt only
    etc.

    any suggestions?

  • Hi – to do that on the default theme, make the code change in the middle section – adapt to your theme

    <?php if (have_posts()) : ?>
       <?php while (have_posts()) : the_post(); ?>
          <div <?php post_class() ?> id="post-<?php the_ID(); ?>">
             <h2><a href="<?php the_permalink() ?>" rel="bookmark" title="Permanent Link to <?php the_title_attribute(); ?>"><?php the_title(); ?></a></h2>
    	<small><?php the_time('F jS, Y') ?> <!-- by <?php the_author() ?> --></small>
     	<div class="entry">

    change this
    <?php the_content('Read the rest of this entry &raquo;'); ?>
    to this

    <?php if ($wp_query->current_post == 0) {
       the_content('Read the rest of this entry &raquo;');
    } else {
       the_excerpt();
    } ?>
    </div>
    
    	<p class="postmetadata"><?php the_tags('Tags: ', ', ', '<br />'); ?> Posted in <?php the_category(', ') ?> | <?php edit_post_link('Edit', '', ' | '); ?>  <?php comments_popup_link('No Comments »', '1 Comment »', '% Comments »'); ?></p>
    			</div>
       <?php endwhile; ?>
