I want to create a blog where the newest post is featured with a large picture and the rest of the posts are below with smaller pictures. I know how to do the pictures using custom fields, but I can't figure out how to leave out the newest post (which will be right above them) when I am querying/displaying the list of posts.
The only way I have seen this done in any free themes is by actually having the main post be from a different category than the rest. This won't work because when the next post is added, the old feature will not move to the top of the regular list of posts. I guess you could just change the category of the feature post to a normal post each time you make a new post but I'm hoping there is a way to query all but the newest post.
Here is an example of what i'm talking about: http://michaelhutagalung.com/arthemia/
Anyone know how to do this?
