I have five posts, each of which is sticky. The rest of my site is pages (it's a clippings and resume site.) I am using ITheme2.
Each of the sticky posts has a featured image. The slider bar is working fine; the featured image for each sticky post appears on it.
I have set the Reading settings to "Static Page."
The "Front Page" is set to my "Personal History" page. This is a page, and it is the first thing I want prospective clients and employers to see when they come to my site.
The "Posts Page" is set to "Blog Posts." This is for a small number of blog posts, as opposed to the pages, which I'm using as clippings for published work.
The "Blog pages show at most" setting is set to "1."
Okay. When I click on Blog Posts, I get the slider bar with all five of my sticky posts, So far, so good.
Unfortunately, instead of one post, I get them all.
I just want one post to appear -- not all. That's why I set "Blog pages show at most" to "1," not to "a whole bunch."
I would also like to be able to choose which post is the one that appears, but right now I'd be happy just to get it to show only one post.
One. Not many.
I asked this question in the Forum section, but haven't received any replies, aside from timethief, who said she was flagging it for staff attention. That was 24 hours ago, however, and I figured maybe I should just come to the support section myself to see what happens.
I had several other problems at the time, but for the moment they seem to be in abeyance. Right now, I just want to concentrate on getting one post to appear when "Blog Posts" is clicked. Not many. Just one. Like I've got in the "Blog pages show at most" under the "Reading" settings.
As I said, I'm using iTheme2 -- however, I've tried the "Live Preview" for several other themes that support Static Pages and the same thing happens. Each time I click on the Blog Posts page, all the posts show up.
I think I mentioned that I only want one.
Thanks for any help you can give.
