Hmm.. you want to show your $Content without First Paragraph?

This is for showing only First Paragraph: $Content.FirstParagraph
This is for showing for example the first 25 Word: $Content.LimitWordCount(25)

Showing $Content without First Paragraph you can do 2 Methods...
First Method is to create a new "PageType".. maybe called "ArticlePage"

Then add the First Paragraph Text into the ArticlePage.ss before the $Content tag. When you use now $Content oder $Content.FirstParagraph in your ArticleHolder.. what uses <% control children %> or thing like this.. you will get the Content without the first Paragraph!!!

The second method is well coded. You must create again a new PageType. In the php-File of this new PageType you can add a new field like $Content2 oder $FP (first paragraph)..
so you have 2 different TextAreas in your CMS.. this way is easier to handle with your content, but little more to write in your php file.

if you dont know how to add a second Content field for your PageType and how to use it, write here and i'll answer!

function AllButFirstParagraph() {
return str_replace($this->obj('Content')->FirstParagraph(), '', $this->Content);
}
