I'm very new to wordpress. I have just a basic site and standard theme (twenty ten) What I'm trying to accomplish is having my "home" page show only 1 recent post, while my archives/blog pages show all the rest. I've read a lot about this, but the answer is always a coding solution, and I manage my wordpress directly from wordpress.com. I've always gone to Settings>Reading>Posts Per Blog - but all that changes is the amount of posts showing up in my archives and not on my home page. PLEASE HELP if there is something I'm missing or a way to change this. Thank you.
The blog I need help with is itwasjuly.wordpress.com.
