I upgraded and have the settings correct I believe. I am looking to have 10 posts per page (this is set in the SETTINGS-->READING) and then the first 5 posts as full posts, and the remainder just excerpts on the front page. Subsequent pages are all excerpts.
On the theme settings under POSTS/EXCERPTS I have the first setting as EXCERPTS ONLY and then the next setting as SHOW THE FIRST 5 (have also changed that number and the number in the settings and still no go)
It is showing the full 10 posts as full posts on the front page and then the following pages are excerpts.
Also, I would like to know the cost for someone to modify the CSS (I am not confident in myself) for the Block Quote to be a large quote mark before a block quote on the left, and a large quote mark at the end of the block quote on the bottom right. The color of the quote mark would be similat to the current background color of the block quote.
