    Hi there,

    I'm living in London for a while, so I made my own wordpress to let some people know what I am doing here.

    I've changed my WordPress a lot... And now I don't have any page numbers. So when I post a (long) message, it will be all on the same page. I have got a lot of messages, and it's getting bigger and bigger.

    Can anyone help me out to make some page numbers, so I can have only 5 messages per page? Is this possible?

    My wordpress can be found at http://www.miichel.6x.to/

    Thanks in advance,

    Michel

    Log on to wp-admin. Go to options/reading. Find Blog Pages and put 5 in the box.

    PS. Stop thanking people in advance. I don't know where that started but it is illogical.

    Yeah, I know that, but on my WordPress i don't get more pages. So if I set it on 5, I will only see the last 5 messages...

    I want to see the last 5 messages, but also the other messages on other page(s)...

    You will see 5 and then "older entries" - click on that and you will see 5 more. Are you saying you don't get the "older entries" link?

    Yes, that's right. I don't see anything at all when I set it on 5.

    Check my blog at http://www.miichel.6x.to/ and you will see that I changed a lot by myself. I only want to know how to get the page numbers back.

    Do you have next_posts_link(); and previous_posts_link(); tags in your theme?

    "So when I post a (long) message, it will be all on the same page."

    You could try using the Excerpt field when writing posts, or the <!--more--> marker to show only a small part of your posts, rather than have them on the same page in their entirety.

    Many thanks, that's what I am looking for. One small question. How can i change the text of 'more..' when you use the <!--more--> marker?

    Edit the the_content() tag inside the Loop.
