I have a featured post (Bed-Bugged) with a photo but when I try to stick it on the front page, it ignores the photo and posts only a couple of lines. Beneath that, is a long post that consumes the rest of the page until we get to the footers. I need more space for the featured post and less for the one that follows it. Or I need to know how to get more than two lines of the post into that space. I've read and searched but can't seem to find out how to expand the area for the featured post. I also tried unsticking it and bumping up the date so it would be the most current post, but that didn't work either.
What I'd really like to do is move my blog posts to the blog page and have two sticky posts on the front page or, have one sticky and one "most current" post, but with more space for the featured post. Are either of these possible?
