I was wondering if anyone had any advice for what I am trying to accomplish. I am helping a friend with a “he said/she said” blog and they want to have his posts in one column and her posts in another. Our idea was to have the first post from each author display in full and the rest would be excerpts. I have a quick mock up here.
That would require writing a custom loop template file for the front page. Substantial code writing is required. If you’re not familiar with PHP and WordPress, better hire someone who is to implement it for you.
