Sorry, more clicks are just road blocks, irritations. "thesacredpath" said it best:
"There is no way to tell what someone reads that is on your front page in its entirety. That is like trying to tell which houses I looked at while driving down a street in a different town from where you are."
That is what I want to eliminate. I absolutely should be able tell how many people read which posts, without making them do extra clicks.
I want no Home page listing of views, and that should not be so hard. A simple configuration setting, Home page yes or home page no, a box to check.
You are all writing as if 1. Everyone goes to the blogger's home page; and 2. Home page is some inviolate concept that cannot be changed.
I'll tell you what I will have to do. I will have to right after a post, make another post, a Home page trap blocker, that says it is just to avoid the Home page trap, to just scroll down a wee bit to the real post. And I will have to do that over and over, after each post, removing the previous Home page trap blocker.
Again, "thesacredpath" hits it right home: "That way they have to click on other things if they want to read anything." It boggles the mind that we would tell readers that they have to do anything.
