    Hi there, sorry if this sounds a bit ridiculous but this is my first attempt at a blog and I don’t know how to ensure each subsequent posting is on a new page. I deliberately tailored my initial post to the galleries either side but since continuing with more words the post just reads on down and I don’t want that. Hoping you can help

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

    Hi @kazzahambo,

    Welcome to WordPress.com blogging! :) Are you looking to have multiple posts on the Home page and truncate your post? One solution which could help is the More tag. You can learn about it here:

    https://en.support.wordpress.com/more-tag/

    If this does not help, if you could explain me a little more details of what you are trying to achieve –– we could figure the best optimal solution.

    Thanks!

    @kazzahambo,

    I deliberately tailored my initial post to the galleries either side but since continuing with more words the post just reads on down and I don’t want that.

    None of the images in the galleries in the left and right sidebars of your front page link to posts, so it’s not clear what you mean.

    Regarding modifying the length of posts on the blog page (front page), the More Tag suggestion by @pavanrahejan is the way to go with the Twenty Fourteen theme. Some themes include an option in Customize that allows you to universally display excerpts of posts instead of the full posts on the blog page. Since that option isn’t available on Twenty Fourteen, each post most be treated separately.

    I don’t know how to ensure each subsequent posting is on a new page.

    You can’t post to static pages. There is only one blog page per WordPress.com site. However, you may use Category Pages to organize posts into separate groups by Category. While every post, regardless of the category or categories assigned to it, will still appear in the blog page, it is not necessary to display the latest posts on the front page. You may choose to display a static page on the front page instead. See the Set a Static “Home” Page (Front Page) support page for relevant instructions and information.

    Links to post categories and/or individual posts may be included in a Custom Menu. I suggest that you do the following:

    • Add categories to your posts corresponding to the categories to appear in the menu. A category page is automatically created when a category is added to at least one post. A specific category page grows each time you publish a new post with that category assigned to it, or assign that category to an old post.
    • If your navigation menu isn’t a Custom Menu, then replace it with one. In your custom menu, include links to category pages among the top-level menu items.You may optionally nest links to individual posts as sub-menu items beneath the category items, as described in the Changing the Order & Creating Sub-Menus section of the Custom Menus support page.

    Correction:
    “each post must be treated separately”
