I'm starting a blog which will (hopefully!) have content added frequently by multiple authors. I definitely want to only list excerpts on the home page. I've read a few posts on that and think I can make that happen. But I'd also like to have them listed in two columns, I think chronologically. Ideally I'd have the most recent post's excerpt two columns wide. On the second "line" would be the 2nd most recent on the left, with the 3rd most recent on the right. The third "line" would have the 4th and fifth. Etc. Like the default WP themes I'd keep a full column on the extreme right for links, etc.
Has anyone attempted this? I'm handy with PHP but haven't looked into the code yet. I'll have to say the wordpress setup was wonderfully simple (I've set up many MT blogs).
