    Hello there! Thanks for reading!

    I’m working on a child theme from twentyten theme.

    Basically Home page needs to show the latest post in full, and 5 more post excerpts. And following pages would have the next 5 and so on…. Right now I have everything except my next page, always shows the 5 excerpts from the previous page.

    I don’t really know if how i set this up is the best way to do this So hopefully someone here could provide me a little much needed guidance. Ha

    I created two loops in my loop.php. One that shows only if home and not page. The second that is my additional page excerpts offset by 1.

    First loop:

    <?php if (is_home() && !is_paged()):?>
    <?php
    	query_posts( 'posts_per_page=1' );
    	while ( have_posts() ) : the_post();
    ?>
    		<div id="post-<?php the_ID(); ?>" <?php post_class(); ?>>
    			<h2 class="entry-title"><a href="<?php the_permalink(); ?>" title="<?php printf( esc_attr__( 'Permalink to %s', 'twentyten' ), the_title_attribute( 'echo=0' ) ); ?>" rel="bookmark"><?php the_title(); ?></a></h2>
    
    			<div class="entry-meta">
    				<?php twentyten_posted_on(); ?>
    			</div><!-- .entry-meta -->
    
    	<?php if ( is_archive() || is_search() ) : // Only display excerpts for archives and search. ?>
    			<div class="entry-summary">
    				<?php the_excerpt(); ?>
    			</div><!-- .entry-summary -->
    	<?php else : ?>
    			<div class="entry-content">
    				<?php the_content( __( 'Continue reading <span class="meta-nav">&rarr;</span>', 'twentyten' ) ); ?>
    				<?php wp_link_pages( array( 'before' => '<div class="page-link">' . __( 'Pages:', 'twentyten' ), 'after' => '</div>' ) ); ?>
    			</div><!-- .entry-content -->
    	<?php endif; ?>
    
    			<div class="entry-utility">
    				<?php if ( count( get_the_category() ) ) : ?>
    					<span class="cat-links">
    						<?php printf( __( '<span class="%1$s">Posted in</span> %2$s', 'twentyten' ), 'entry-utility-prep entry-utility-prep-cat-links', get_the_category_list( ', ' ) ); ?>
    					</span>
    					<span class="meta-sep">|</span>
    				<?php endif; ?>
    				<?php
    					$tags_list = get_the_tag_list( '', ', ' );
    					if ( $tags_list ):
    				?>
    					<span class="tag-links">
    						<?php printf( __( '<span class="%1$s">Tagged</span> %2$s', 'twentyten' ), 'entry-utility-prep entry-utility-prep-tag-links', $tags_list ); ?>
    					</span>
    					<span class="meta-sep">|</span>
    				<?php endif; ?>
    				<span class="comments-link"><?php comments_popup_link( __( 'Leave a comment', 'twentyten' ), __( '1 Comment', 'twentyten' ), __( '% Comments', 'twentyten' ) ); ?></span>
    				<?php edit_post_link( __( 'Edit', 'twentyten' ), '<span class="meta-sep">|</span> <span class="edit-link">', '</span>' ); ?>
    			</div><!-- .entry-utility -->
    		</div><!-- #post-## -->
    
    		<?php comments_template( '', true ); ?>
    
    <?php endwhile; // End the loop. Whew. ?>
    <?php endif; ?>
    <?php wp_reset_query();  ?>

    And my second loop is:

    <?php
    	$the_query = new WP_Query( 'posts_per_page=5&offset=1' );
    	//query_posts('posts_per_page=5&offset=1');
    	while ( $the_query->have_posts() ) :
    	$the_query->the_post();
    ?>
    
    		<div id="post-<?php the_ID(); ?>" <?php post_class(); ?>>
    			<h2 class="entry-title"><a href="<?php the_permalink(); ?>" title="<?php printf( esc_attr__( 'Permalink to %s', 'twentyten' ), the_title_attribute( 'echo=0' ) ); ?>" rel="bookmark"><?php the_title(); ?></a></h2>
    
    			<div class="entry-meta">
    				<?php twentyten_posted_on(); ?>
    			</div><!-- .entry-meta -->
    
    	<?php if ( is_archive() || is_search() ) : // Only display excerpts for archives and search. ?>
    			<div class="entry-summary">
    				<?php the_excerpt(); ?>
    			</div><!-- .entry-summary -->
    	<?php else : ?>
    			<div class="entry-content">
    				<?php the_excerpt(); ?>
    				<?php //wp_link_pages( array( 'before' => '<div class="page-link">' . __( 'Pages:', 'twentyten' ), 'after' => '</div>' ) ); ?>
    			</div><!-- .entry-content -->
    	<?php endif; ?>
    
    			<div class="entry-utility">
    				<?php if ( count( get_the_category() ) ) : ?>
    					<span class="cat-links">
    						<?php printf( __( '<span class="%1$s">Posted in</span> %2$s', 'twentyten' ), 'entry-utility-prep entry-utility-prep-cat-links', get_the_category_list( ', ' ) ); ?>
    					</span>
    					<span class="meta-sep">|</span>
    				<?php endif; ?>
    				<?php
    					$tags_list = get_the_tag_list( '', ', ' );
    					if ( $tags_list ):
    				?>
    					<span class="tag-links">
    						<?php printf( __( '<span class="%1$s">Tagged</span> %2$s', 'twentyten' ), 'entry-utility-prep entry-utility-prep-tag-links', $tags_list ); ?>
    					</span>
    					<span class="meta-sep">|</span>
    				<?php endif; ?>
    				<span class="comments-link"><?php comments_popup_link( __( 'Leave a comment', 'twentyten' ), __( '1 Comment', 'twentyten' ), __( '% Comments', 'twentyten' ) ); ?></span>
    				<?php edit_post_link( __( 'Edit', 'twentyten' ), '<span class="meta-sep">|</span> <span class="edit-link">', '</span>' ); ?>
    			</div><!-- .entry-utility -->
    		</div><!-- #post-## -->
    
    		<?php comments_template( '', true ); ?>
    
    <?php endwhile; ?>

    And my pagination stuff looks like this:

    <?php if (  $wp_query->max_num_pages > 1 ) : ?>
    				<div id="nav-below" class="navigation">
    					<div class="nav-previous"><?php next_posts_link( __( '<span class="meta-nav">&larr;</span> Older posts', 'twentyten' ) ); ?></div>
    					<div class="nav-next"><?php previous_posts_link( __( 'Newer posts <span class="meta-nav">&rarr;</span>', 'twentyten' ) ); ?></div>
    				</div><!-- #nav-below -->
    <?php endif; ?>
    <?php wp_reset_query();  ?>

    I know this is a lot of stuff here.. Hopefully this makes sense and this is the proper place to post my question.

    Anyway thank you for any help guiding me!
