I have my 3 latest blog posts displaying on the homepage using the "function LatestNews($num=5)" discussed elsewhere, works fine however I'd like to have the latest single post as a 'featured' blog or top story with a photo etc, displaying in it's own div, and the next two most recent blogs underneath in a different div. I can get the single featured blog post ok, problem is displaying the next two on their own - I can display the list of 3 but the top story is repeated. Is there any way of displaying only blog posts Number 2 and 3? Or hiding post 1 from the displayed list?
I dont want to use 2 blog holders either - I want the top news story to move down to the list below automatically when a new story is posted, ie the client only has one blog to update.
Any suggestions much appreciated,
