archive possible?

  1. How does one archive so the post page is not a mile long - I would like to have the older posts only come up whejn they click a category?

    The blog I need help with is littlemoretracts.wordpress.com.

  2. The software auoimatically posts to the Archives every time you publish a post, not a page. You set the number of posts to be displayed here > Settings > Reading
    Blog pages show at most __ posts
    "save changes"

    You can also split content in posts by inserting "the more tag" into your posts so only excerpts are displayed and your front page isn't a mile long.

    Whether or not full posts are displayed on Categories Pages and Archives pages is theme dependent ie. it's coded into the template and we cannot edit templates or themes. http://en.support.wordpress.com/themes/editing-themes/

    In the majority of themes, posts on category or other archive pages show up just as they do on the main posts page in the blog and the number displayed is also the same. (See this page > Settings > Reading and note how many posts you choose there sets it for all). But in some themes only the beginnings of posts are shown, and in a few themes you only get titles or thumbnails. See here for a theme list of themes that may display the way you want > Category/archive pages: full posts or not http://wpbtips.wordpress.com/2009/03/25/full-posts-in-archive-pages/
