I've tried to find a solution in the forum and regret that I could not find one. I'm working on a site for a client who wants to have just 1 full blog post on the front page but 6 excerpts/page on the archive and category pages. When I change the Settings > Reading to 6, of course I get one full post and 5 excerpts on the front page. How can I limit the # of articles on the front page without affecting the archive pages, etc.? As always, thanks for your help.

You could use a plugin like "List Category Posts" and configure it to only show one post and put the shortcode on the front page.
