I have a news holder page on which the first news story is displayed defferently to others (eg as a hero). I achieve this by using the <% if first %> page control. and the rest of the stories are displayed in the standard way.

I have set up paging on the holder page so only 9 are displayed on each page.

My problem is that when I page to the next page I do not want the hero to appear. rather that all the stories are then displayed normall. This is because I only want the first story in my cms to be displayed as hero.

Does this make sense? Does anyone know how I might acheive this?

There is a handy control with DataObjectSet called NotFirstPage, that should do the trick:

<% if YourDataSet.NotFirstPage %>
Non-Hero header
<% else %>
Check out the $Top.$Hero
<% end_if %>
