Topic: Typo Blog - Paginate?
I am using the current Trunk version # 1055 of Typo. One of the ways that I'm learning RoR is that I've begun creating my own theme for my Typo blog. Which during this development of my new theme, I am just working locally on my laptop, before I upload it to a live server when completed. I am using the Hemingway theme as my starting point & editing the files to make the theme look the way I want.
My general issue & reason for my question for help is that instead of a traditional blog that shows the entire blog on the home page, I want to only show the most recent blog on the home page and this entry will have a maximum number of characters & say "Read More" (which of course would link to the main blog page) if it goes beyond that. Then the main navigation of the site will have a link to a separate blog page, witch will have the entire blog. Plus, I'm hoping to also show the titles-only of the 2nd, 3rd & 4th most recent blog entries on the home page as well. An example of the general layout is http://orderedlist.com/
Also, I do not want to use the Admin page within Typo & just create the Pages code within the database... I want to create all this within the file structure of my Theme directory. Although I am willing to edit some files outside of the Theme directory as needed
