I forgot the command, but there's a way in Exhibit to put something like < !-- display-thumbs_1-5 -->, and only display the first five thumbs.
Also, I tried using this command in the past, and noticed that if I turn thumbs off, then use this command, it turns the thumbs back on, so that they all display at the bottom again. Is this the intended behavior?
What I'm trying to do is this: have the main picture and the thumbs display before the textual content of the post. I can publish the post, view the source, and manually paste the code for the thumbs at the top, which I did in a recent post, but I'd prefer to be able to do it with the Exhibit commands.
