I’m trying to make a WordPress blog where the home page shows only the 3 most recent posts, but for the newest of these posts, it shows the entire post (not just the teaser content), and then for the other 2, it shows the teaser content with the “read more” button.

I’m currently building all this with the “Basic” theme.

I’m still fairly new to WordPress and PHP, but have a firm background in HTML/CSS, and a little Java background.

Any ideas?

Also, is there a way to control how much of the post is shown before the “Read More” button?
