Mullet Layout on

Hojuin is trying to get a mullet layout working on (The mullet layout is explained in greater detail here , along with a movable type implementation). Lots more mullet articles are available for the curious. It’s basically an easy way to display radically more content on the front page of a blog.
I unfortunately know nothing about templates, so I’m not in a position to help. If there’s anyone out there who knows how to hack on, please give this guy a hand. The blogosphere will thank you for it!

MulletWatch 2005: Read/Write Mullet

Richard MacManus’s blog uses the mullet layout to excellent effect. Read/write web actually has two blogs within it. His linkblog ( is a classic mullet. The top seven stories displaying links and excerpts, and the next eight just displaying links. His main blog ( uses a modified mullet that has anchor links at the top of the page, as well as shorter links at the bottom for older entries. This is a nice touch: the addition of the anchor links means that links to the top 5 stories are always “above the fold” on the front page. I dub it “the sandwich”.
