Turnout Mag Theme - Modifying index.php (2 posts)

    Hey everyone. I'm using the Turnout mag theme for a site. It's a great theme that lays out all the posts in a grid layout. Here is the site:

    What I wanted to do was modify it so that the latest entry is highlighted and perhaps change the color of the "box". Unfortunately, the php code in index.php goes through a for loop to list all the posts in boxes. I am not sure if there is a way for me to display the first post differently. I ran into a road block with this and can't think of any solutions. Would appreciate any help from the wise members on this forum.

    Assuming that the start of your current Loop looks something like:

    <?php if (have_posts()) : while (have_posts()) : the_post(); ?>
    <div class="post">

    you could try changing it to:

    <?php $c = 0;$style = ''; ?>
    <?php if (have_posts()) : while (have_posts()) : the_post(); ?>
    <?php $c++;
    if( $c == 1 ) $style=' highlight'; ?>
    <div class="post<?php echo $style;?>">

    That should add the class "first" to the most recent post only. You could then use this class in your theme's stylesheet to highlight the most recent post - e.g.:

    `#content .post .first {border-color:#FF9000;}
