    Hi all, I would like to change the number of posts displayed in my Archives. Right now it’s 10, but I’d like to increase it to 31 so that all of the posts in a month would be on one page. Is this possible with CSS? thanks!

    The blog I need help with is notchangingmyname.com.

    I like the way your Navigation Menu look in the header. I have Custom CSS upgrade but do not know what to do it. Can you show me how please?

    My website is :thetwschool.com.

    Is this possible with CSS?

    No. CSS editing cannot be used to change the way any theme functions. We cannot edit templates or themes. http://en.support.wordpress.com/themes/editing-themes/

    Does the Custom Design upgrade let me edit HTML?
    No. The Custom Design upgrade allows you to edit fonts and CSS only. You can change the appearance of a theme, but not its HTML markup, PHP code, or content. http://en.support.wordpress.com/custom-design/#frequently-asked-questions

    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. See this page > Settings > Reading and note how many posts you choose there sets it for all pages.

    CSS editing is theme specific. You are using another theme. If you purchased the annually renewable custom design upgrade then please start your own thread by clicking this link > https://en.forums.wordpress.com/forum/css-customization

    All CSS is theme specific and larry888 is using a premium theme — it’s not the same theme as yours.

    Where can I find My Setting and My Menu, so that I can copy and paste the code? It is not in the Dashboard.

    Do not copy and paste that code anywhere. It will not work on your theme. Please do as I said and click this link and start your own thread https://en.forums.wordpress.com/forum/css-customization
