Hi,
I really want to be able to have a story introduction that shows up on the main index page which is just that an introducton, small images etc.
When clicked on then the main body of the story would load BUT NOT THE INTRODUTION.
if you look at http://www.phayul.com
They have the exact feature I want it allows loads of stories on the front page, but when clicked the main story appears.
Thanks for any help.

This has been proposed several times. There would be a checkbox on the story to indicate if the "intro" box should be treated as a part of the story or treated as a summary. I believe this hasn't been done yet because the story submission doesn't allow the submitter to create the intro and body text separately, assuming the editor would do this.

I believe CVS has a patch to have two boxes in the submission screen so hopefully someone can add this checkbox to the article table too someday.
