Want the # of blog posts on display page and within Categories to be different--

  1. Hi,

    I am trying to limit the amount of blog posts on my display page to 2 plus my sticky, but I want my readers to be able to click on "Categories", and see all my posts in that category-- when I use the blog post number under Settings-Reading, it seems to control both (so if I put 2, it will only show 2 on my front page plus the sticky, and only 2 in any category)-- is there a way to work around this, so that my display page isn't over-crowded, but my readers can click on Categories and see all my posts within each?

    Thank you,
    Heather

  2. I'm sorry but 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 nubler 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/

  3. Wonderful-- thank you, and thanks for being so speedy! I will look at other templates to see which fits my needs best.

    Thanks,
    Heather
