I'm very new to all this and am slowly going about customizing my K2 theme. I did a search for what I'm about to ask and couldn't find it specifically, and what I did find made my head hurt. sooo...
I'm looking to customize my index page to make it a fixed height, and thinking that to do this I don't want to see a lot of blog entries. I'd like to keep the most recent entry there as the only entry visible, and either in a new column to the right of that (not the sidebar) or a space below that entry, list the "latest" header and entries (which at is currently in the sidebar). BUT, i want to limit the number of entries under that to 5 or fewer (and maybe get the date for each post underneath it).
I've seen it done on other sites but can't figure it out! Any help would be greatly appreciated.
