    I am wanting to show only the most recent post in it's entirety, then have the rest of the most recent posts show as summaries. How do I go about doing that? I am a NOVICE so please provide step by step instructions on how to do this. Thank you!

  2. details depend on your used theme.

    general and most basic, try to locate the code:
    <?php the_content(); ?>
    in your theme's index template, and change it for example to:

    <?php if( $wp_query->current_post == 0 ) : the_content();
    else : the_excerpt();
    endif; ?>
