I just saw this page – an author page — on my blog
I never noticed before
At any rate, why doesn’t it list all the posts all my blog – since i am the author of all the posts on my blog
Would somebody take a look at it?
The blog I need help with is danielberhane.wordpress.com.
Hi. It might be a bug with the Structure theme, as there is no “Previous/Next” link. Normally, you should be able to click on a link to land on Page 2 of all posts by author “danielberhane”.
Did you deliberately choose to display 30 posts per page or so?
i don’t know where i can do that…even if i wanted it to show only 30 posts
In fact, that is what annoyed me
If you want to change it: Settings > Reading > Blog pages show at most __ posts.
In regards to the author page only displaying the first __ posts, I tagged this thread so that staff takes a look and confirms if it’s a bug or if the theme is designed to do that.
Hey long live airodyssey.
I followed your instruction and …now it is solved.
I am not sure what else you wanted the staff to do about it.
As far as i am concerned it is fixed and i owe it to you.
That’s not what I had in mind (your front page loads slowly for me because you have like 200 posts)… But hey if that makes you happy… :-)
You are right.
I already got this:
WordPress.com tip: Your syndication feeds are set to show the most recent 200 posts. Change it to 10 or 15 posts to make your feed load faster.
So, i changed it to 15.
I hope the staff will take a look at it.
Blog pages show at most 200 posts
Syndication feeds show the most recent 15 items
Is that bad?
200 is a real bad number – that means that every visitor will need to wait for all 200 posts (when you get that many) to load before they can read your site — they won’t come back a second time!!!!!!!!!!!! 10 or 15 Posts per page is a good number. Your Posts are also long – use the “More Tag” to shorten them – visitors that have already read a specific Post won’t want to wait for what they have already read each time they visit.
I did as you said – thanx.
Btw,FYI, i got 188 posts
It’s normal to have 5 – 6 posts on ones’ front page and a similar number or fewer in the RSS feed. What you have is far too high a number in both cases. Page loading time is a Google page ranking factor. You want your front page to load quickly or else visitors click out instead of waiting.
I have the same problem the Author page. I want to get rid of it but dont know how. My front page displays 6 post max.
Here is the link to my blog, theme is “twenty eleven.
Thanks in advance
Author is part of the system just like the dynamic pages created for tags or categories, or the archives pages. On a single author site, it is not of much use, but for multiple author sites it presents an easy way for someone to see all the posts by a single author.
So there is no need to worry about that i suppose. Thanks. One more question where can i post a thing that i would like to see improved? I would like to create a site map or a good archive page.
You can post it in the ideas forum.
