Ok, that’s quite easy. You’re going to filter lists. For example I do exactly this on the home of my blog where the first big cell is showing the last featured post.

So you’ll need at least 2 Dynamic lists. One showing the Featured posts, one for the non featured one.

Set the featured list on top, and filter it like this:

Additionally you can restraint to a given number of posts. I chose to only featured 1 featured post:

Then, for the normal posts list, you can hide the featured posts:

The general idea is that you can build nice and complex grids using multiple Dynamic Lists. On my other blog I use multiple lists on home, both to showcase featured content and to vary size an look.

Thank you @vincent, I will check it out!

Thank you so much @vincent, I made it :slight_smile: – Great!
