    Hi

    I have seen a couple of entries that talk about their page only showing 5 posts but none seem to fix the problem for me, I'm using the Hatch theme and I've tried changing the Syndication feeds show the most recent to 20 but nothings working any help would be grateful received.

    Here is the site, which is still under construction.

    thanks

    I've tried changing the Syndication feeds show the most recent to 20

    That only affects your RSS feeds - not your main posts page. Try the "Blog pages show at most" setting instead.

    Have you tried:

    - deactivating all plugins to see if this resolves the problem. If this works, re-activate the plugins one by one until you find the problematic plugin(s).

    - switching to the Twenty Eleven theme to rule out any theme-specific problems.

    - resetting the plugins folder by FTP or PhpMyAdmin. Sometimes, an apparently inactive plugin can still cause problems.

    Thanks

    I tried the plugins but still no joy, worried the other options will mean I have to start it all again, have just put the blog archives on the side bar so at least the posts are now accessible once not live anymore,

    No. Switching themes is completely reversible as is resetting the plugins folder.

    Ok switched it to Twenty Eleven but still only 5 posts,

    I have a plugin called blog in blog that enables me to put posts into the page and separate by category which is how I have split the website, with some posts going into the portfolio category and being displayed on the front page and blog category on the blog page, could this be a problem as I like the way it enables me to have this function.

    What happens if you deactivate that plugin? Can you see 20 posts on your home page using Twenty Eleven?

    I tried it and the posts on my blog page disappear but they all go on to my home page about 10 of them, so I guess this is he problem, there is probably some code I need to change in the plugin but what?

    Have you checked the plugin's documentation?

    Yeah I went the the plug in page but couldn't see anything relating, I also looked on the plugin specific forum but no mention,

    Add a shotcode such as [blog_in_blog category_slug='my-category-slug' num=5] to a new PAGE

    What is in the shortcode on your posts page?
