Style XenPorta block for LnBlog

Hi, hope this is the right place to ask.

I'm using the block for LnBlog with XenPorta so we get recent blog entries listed on our site.
Now I want to give those recent post a more prominent place on the home page, so instead of putting them in the sidebalk, i'd like to have a real blog-like UI where the most recent posts are shown with a little preview text and a link to read more.

As I requested this by the author, his reply was that it shouldn't be hard to do in the template but that he himself doesn't have the time for it, see http://xenforo.com/community/threads/ln-blog.26841/page-9#post-390058

So could anyone point me in the right direction here? I figure I need to edit the EWRblock_LNBlogEntriesBlock template, but how?

Thanks in advance.

Thanks for that suggestion, that put me in the right direction indeed.
For the record, it was done using the following if-clause:

Code:
       <xen:if is="{$position} == 'top-left' OR {$position} == 'mid-left' OR {$position} == 'btm-left' OR {$position} == 'sidebar'">
