I am trying to be extra “kreative” with a list page layout and had the idea to have the homepage of a site showing one single full-width full-content post followed by 8 next posts in two columns (a card-grid-layout thingy). Then, on the following pages I want to just show two columns of posts without the large post. Which basically means I need the homepage show the first 9 posts and all subsequent pages show 10 posts each. I can’t think of any setup for Hugo, that can achieve this. Am I wrong?
My “hacky” thought was, that in the worst case I am ignoring post 10 on the homepage and by checking if I am on a non-homepage then doing the other sub-pages or something along these lines.
I guess in the end, what would enable me to do a weird layout setup like this would be a way to “know” on which list-page I am. If it’s 1 then I do a
first 9 $posts range and if it’s 1+n I do an
after 9+(n-1)*10 $posts range… That will mess with the pagination, but that is a topic for another day.
