I am almost sure someone has already posted the answer to this, but I am pretty new to php and new to word press and perhaps I'm not using the right vocabulary to search.
Here is my problem. In the dashboard area, if you set the posts per page, it follows this rule for all post pages other than single post pages. This means that if I want just 5 posts showing on the front page, then a category page will only show 5 title and excerpts per page as well. I'd like the category pages to display 20 post links and excerpts instead of just 5. Is there any way to do this?
I'm sure there is, but I have looked and looked in the codex and can't find the answer. Thank you for any suggestions you can give in advance
