Missing posts

    Just today, all of my non-sticky posts from 2016 and 2017 have disappeared from the front page of my blog. After the stickies, the last post of 2015 is the next one that shows up.

    All of the missing posts, however, are still listed on the WP Admin list of All Posts.

    My template is Suburbia.

    Anyone else experiencing anything like this? What is the solution?

    The blog I need help with is kevinbrennanbooks.wordpress.com.

    Suburbia is an old retired theme and the recommendation is to switch themes as themes are retired when they no longer support all wordpress.COM features.

    Let’s ask Themes Staff to assist you with sorting this out. I will type modlook into the sidebar tags on this thread for Staff help.

    Hi @kevinbrennan520, your site is configured to show 10 posts on the front page. 13 posts are sticky, so that would explain why other posts aren’t showing.

    Do you want to unsticky some of those? You might even give them all a shared tag or category, like “favorites” then link to them from the menu on the left.

    Personally I’d recommend going with 1-2 sticky posts tops, unless your theme is designed to do something special with them, then I’d go with that theme’s recommendations.

    If you show too many sticky posts, site visitors will only ever see the same old content.

    Thank you, timethief and supernovia. I tried cutting back on the stickies and that did the trick!

    I had no idea Suburbia was retired, so I’ll fish around for a new theme to see if something more recent will do the trick.

    Appreciate your help!
