I am interesting in keeping a close eye on how many views my posts receive. For a while, I was allowing my latest 10 posts appear on the homepage of my blog, which meant that people could view more than one post, but statistically, it would only count as one.
Therefore, I limited the posts that would appear on my homepage to 1, having in mind that visitors would click on previous posts and therefore would be tracked.
However, my stats have gone down since I've tried this, and I think it is because of the lack of visibility of the older posts. At the bottom of the one visible post on my homepage, it only reads "Only Posts", but does not include the post title or a summary.
HERE IS MY QUESTION: Is it possible to have all but the most recent post appear as a summary? I mean, I would like the latest post to appear in full and then the previous ones to appear as excerpts to encourage readers to continue reading...
Thanks for any help you can offer.
The blog I need help with is jwmulligan.wordpress.com.
