Ruhan,

You can change your Index page into ab blogging page:

Take it slowly but it works well.

Thanks. Currently my Index page is `n blogging page, but I want the latest post to be prominent. Like a banner above all the other content.

Hello,
The blog works with the latest post being a the top and the others flowing down. It isn't really possible to separate the latest post from the rest of them although you could manually do something like this by creating a banner or section with the blog title or whatever other information you wanted and create your own text link that would go to the individual blog post with more information. I took a look at that site you referenced and you could make it look and function like that, you would just need to manually create and change it.

Hope that helps a bit!

Hi Ruhan,

I was hoping you were using Firefox, because there's a way of copying and pasting directly with this browser. Chrome I use but I've never tried to or even looked at edit functions.

Just to fill you in it's a two step process. Don't you hate that. near but far :(
