    I am using below to output the excerpt for 2nd and 3rd items on first page. I want to include the post thumbnail in the excerpt and output some html tags around the exceprt like <div class="excerpt"> and include a title and a little bit of the post text. Would it be better to output a modified content tag and how would I filter the content returned?



    function front_page_content($content) {
    // We need some global data. $thematic_post_alt is the post number on a page.
    // $paged is the page number
    global $thematic_post_alt, $paged;
    // Check if we are on the Front page or on our Blog page. You might want to
    // change this first check according to your installation.
    if (is_home() || is_front_page()) {
    // Check if we are on the first page and if it is the first
    // post on this page
    if (($paged < 2) && ( ($thematic_post_alt-1) == 1 )) {
    // The first post on the first page will be full content
    $content = 'full';
    } else {
    // Everything else will be excerpt
    $content= 'excerpt';

    // Return the controll to the thematic_content filter hook
    return $content;
    // Hook our function into thematic content
    add_filter('thematic_content', 'front_page_content');
