Front page articles, different class.

Sorry if this has been posted before I wasn’t sure what to search for.

I’ve just started setting up my site with textpattern, and its easier than imagined it to be.

On the front page I will have 3 articles, the first (at the top) will be larger than the 2 below. How can I accomplish this in Textpattern?

To see what I mean go to my site.

I suspect it will be a case of changing the class of the div wrapped around the 2nd and 3rd articles but i have no idea how to do this with textpattern

Re: Front page articles, different class.

You will need a means of separating the first from the second/third article. This can be achieved in various ways:

  1. txp:article supports three attributes, offset, pageby and limit which help to render multi part article lists. A example can be found in the corresponding Textbook page (Example 3).
  2. A conditional tag is an alternative way: txp:if_first_article.

As soon as you got the two parts separated, you can pass different form values into txp:article which will in turn contain the markup you wanted to use for the first and all subsequent articles (varying classes…).
