I want to be able to have a certain style for the posts inindex.php, but when I click on the initial post I want that post to have a different style. I am having trouble finding a way to do this because I do not know what functions control an individual post.
Example of what I am talking about is on mattbrett.com
If you look on his main page you will see a single post with a single style, now if you click on the post to read through its entirety it has a different style.
I am wondering if it is possible to modify the original wordpress index.php to act in a similar fashion, and if not how can I accomplish this??
