Separate display settings for blog posts and search results

    It would be ideal to be able for blog pages to show at most 1 post without affecting the number of posts displayed in the search results.

    At the moment, if I select “show at most 1”, it creates clean-looking blog pages but really sparse search results. Displaying search results one by one makes finding stuff really tedious for the reader and would cause them to abandon the site.

    I’m unable to quickly create a workaround for the theme I just switched to. But a workaround shouldn’t be the solution, honestly. Would it be possible to split up the display settings for these two things?

    The blog I need help with is meansoybean.com.

    The blog you specified at meansoybean.com does not appear to be hosted at WordPress.com.

    This support forum is for blogs hosted at WordPress.com. If your question is about a self-hosted WordPress blog then you’ll find help at the WordPress.org forums.

    If you don’t understand the difference between WordPress.com and WordPress.org, you may find this information helpful.

    If you forgot to include a link to your blog, you can reply and include it below. It’ll help people to answer your question.

    Nevermind… this helped me figure it out. Again, it’s a workaround.

    That does not apply to WordPress.com blogs, for the record.

    Yes, I saw what the bot said.

    To me, and others, “.org” would imply “free” whereas “.com” implies “paid”, as in “self hosted”.

    meansoybean, you’re not thinking straight.
