  • Hemmingway, by default, displays two posts:

    // Here is the call to only make two posts show up on the homepage REGARDLESS of your options in the control panel
    <?php if (have_posts()) : ?>
    <?php $first = true; ?>
    <?php while (have_posts()) : the_post(); ?>
    <div class="story<?php if($first == true) echo " first" ?>">
    <h3><a href="<?php the_permalink() ?>" rel="bookmark" title="Permanent Link to <?php the_title(); ?>"><?php the_title(); ?></a></h3>
    <?php $hemingway->excerpt() ?>
    <div class="details">
    <?= _('Posted at') ?> <?php the_time('ga on ' . $hemingway->date_format(true) . '/y') ?> | <?php comments_popup_link('no comments', '1 comment', '% comments'); ?> | Filed Under: <?php the_category(', ') ?> <span class="read-on"><a href="<?php the_permalink() ?>">read on</a></span>
    <?php $first = false; ?>
    <?php endwhile; ?>
    <?php else : ?>
    <h2 class="center">Not Found</h2>
    <p class="center">Sorry, but you are looking for something that isn't here.
    <?php include (TEMPLATEPATH . "/searchform.php"); ?>
    <?php endif; ?>

    I need to modify this so that it displays the first post (the oldest) in the blog, then displays the newest post. Anyone have any suggestions?

    The best I can say is to add the WP-sticky plugin and make the oldest a sticky so it stays on the front page for as long as you want it to.
