[resolved] template design (2 posts)

    I am new in using WordPress and I have some minor problems.
    I have a 3 column template design, the side bar in the left and the other 2 columns with articles.
    I have some problems with the post showing on the front page.
    1)I have 4 categories, and I want that post from 2 categories to show on one column and on the other column, the rest of the posts from the other 2 categories.
    2) I use the function the_excerpt() to show the posts on the front page. Is there a way I can control how many rows to show from the excerpt of the article?
    And If I have some pictures at the begining of the article, the picture is not shown on the first page. How can I have a picture in the excerpt of the post???
    Shall I use another function to display the content of the article on the first page?
    3) Is there a plugin that can allow me to modify the order of the post displayed on the first page? I want them displayed as importance, for example, not by date or alphabeticaly.

    3. No, there isn't. And while we are at it - define "importance".
