I am building a custom Wordpress theme and need to show the most recent posts on the homepage. However, I want to show the latest post as a "Featured Article" where it will show the title, an excerpt, and a link to the full post. For the following posts, I only want to show the title and a link to the article.
I know how to show the most recent posts using "query_post", but I'm not entirely sure how to pull this off. Would someone be able give me a hand? Thanks.
