Example of after with first: 2nd–4th most recent articles
You can use after in combination with the first function and Hugo’s powerful sorting methods. Let’s assume you have a list page at example.com/articles. You have 10 articles, but you want your templating for the list/section page to show only two rows:
The top row is titled “Featured” and shows only the most recently published article (i.e. by publishdate in the content files’ front matter).
The second row is titled “Recent Articles” and shows only the 2nd- to 4th-most recently published articles.
