While WordPress.com is generally wonderful, it is not without frustrations. Here are two issues I am having ongoing difficulty with:
1. Setting/controlling the number of posts that appear when blog front page loads.
I did not really notice until just recently, but when the blog's main page tries to load, it seems to load unlimited posts ... which causes an annoying delay. Previously, the blog would show only three of the most recent posts on its front page. If one wanted to view more than that, they would have to click on "older posts" in order to leave the current page and load the next three in order.
This changed -- now the main page loads many posts -- without any action taken and I do not know how to make it return to the way it was where the main page loads JUST the three freshest posts.
2. Controlling the email address where copies of new posts are sent
Prior to about July 18, every time a new posts was loaded, a copy of that new post would be sent to the administrative email address that was designated in the admin settings and this system worked flawlessly.
Then, without any action taken by the blog administrator, the emails stopped arriving in the email inbox. This was a big mystery and there are several posts that are listed in this support forum about this.
I have found that new posts are indeed generating emails, but they are going to another email address other than the one I have designated ... wow, how frustrating this is.
How to I fix this issue???
Why did this email designation change, apparently all on its on???
Thanks in advance for any answers you can provide me on these two frustrating technical problems I can't seem to solve on my own.
