i’d like my front page to have the most recent post from the blog only. i’d like for the viewer to be able to click on “earlier posts” and have them go to a page that has the 10 (or so) previous posts. i’m using wordpress as more of a website rather than a typical blog. so, i’m using the blog as a news section. i just want 1 post so that i can code some other information under the post on the main page (hopefully).
if i set the “number of posts to show on blog pages” to 1 in the settings then all of the blog pages will just have 1, so that doesn’t work.
i tried using the “custom query string” plugin, however with no luck.
i’ve also read much of this: http://codex.wordpress.org/Template_Tags/query_posts
but, wasn’t able to get anything to work appropriately from that source either.
is there a somewhat straight forward simple way to execute this?
thanks very much. : )
