increase number of recent comments shown?
I would send in feedback…
The work around won’t work for me as I have increased my comments feed to a 50 (needed for an aggregator). So, I’m still waiting on the Recent Comments widget to be updated.
electicgeek – I used some info from your text widgets to make my site look a little better (the li for the top posts). Love that others know HTML – I can learn from it :)
drmike: Feedback sent. Thanks for the nudge.
vivianpaige: Surprised you actually made your way through that wilderness I call a sidebar. ;-) Glad I could help.
actually, I grabbed the subscriptions, too, but when I put them it, it forced my last text widget to the top underneath another one. So I took it out. I guess Regulus sidebar area must be fixed length.
@electicgeek – I really love how you do your top 30 posts. How did you do that? Looks like you used a text widget? Was just thinking yesterday that I’d love to do that.
britgirl – check out this http://wordpress.com/forums/topic.php?id=3512&replies=25
vivianpaige – You beat me to it. Just found that thread. Don’t know what to tell you about the text widget problem. If Regulus is fixed length, I’ll be limited very soon.
britgirl – Thank sulz for the great idea. I just added bullets.
Vivian – thanks a bunch – I will.
The length of your front page is dictated by the number of posts that you specify to be displayed on your front page -> dashboard -> options -> reading – > reading options -> blog pages – > show at most [ ] posts.
Somewhere in the forum search box you’ll find a thread that indicates a lower number of posts is preferred by readers. Keep the length of time to load the page on dial-up service in mind. Also note that most folks don’t want to scroll down for more than a few articles.
Hi timethief. I was concerned because if vivianpaige can’t get a widget on her page from a fixed length problem, I won’t be too far behind.
Yep. Thought about the number of posts displayed. Figured people looking for medical information would want as much as possible. I have a dial-up connection (Gasp! I know, I know). Not very many images so the site loads OK. Guess I’m my own guinea pig in that respect.
I’ll check out the thread you suggested and give it some more thought. Anything that makes my visitors more comfortable is fine by me. Thanks for the tip.
increase number of posts on front page threads
TT – I wasn’t talking about the page itself, I was talking about the sidebar. It seems that there is something in the length of the sidebar that is limited. I put another text widget into my sidebar (one containing subscriptions) and it forced the last one up to the top underneath my About text box.
Hhmmm thanks for letting me know about this Viv I had yet to run into it yet. :)
timethief: Much thanks for finding those threads for me. Before I saw them, I was thinking perhaps the 10 posts I display on my front page was a little high. Didn’t realize that some bloggers will have a month’s worth displayed. I’ll stick with my 10. ;-)
Still don’t know what to say about the widget issue that vivianpaige is seeing. I have other things I want to stick in the sidebar. This could be a problem.
So y’all can see what I’m talking about, I just put back in the subscriptions text widget. This time, I dropped it at the bottom of the list. Note that the Feed thingee is now at the bottom of the page.
When I dropped it in before that last text box, it caused the last text box to go up to the top of the sidebar and show up underneath my About box.
Glad you got the subscriptions up even if under strange circumstances. Your footer is also acting weird (at least for me). I see it spread across the full length of the bottom of my screen. Does anyone else see this?
I’m not seeing the footer spread out like you said. I checked in Mozilla and IE. What browser are you using?
I use Mozilla Firefox (18.104.22.168). OK, now I feel crazy. ;)
No – not crazy. Firefox is different from Mozilla and may display differently.
