I'm trying to solve one complicated post listing in categories. I'd like to display a three newest posts on a first level category differently than other posts.
To understand my problem, please see this screenshot.
The top level category displays three newest posts (float left blocks with pictures) and three older posts below it differently. Once you click a red button below them, another six posts should show (all six with the same style as three older posts, that means 6 posts instead of three).
Other thing is a subcategory (eg. Photos - Whatever). The subcategory should display ONLY six posts with same style as three non-float posts.
I have no idea how to solve this. I was trying to search for some is_first_page (in listing) function but I didn't find anything like that. It also doesn't solves the first-level and second-level difference.
Thanks a lot for your help...
