Varying number of posts (2 posts)

    Hi,

    I'd like to display a lot more posts on the monthly archive than on the first page. I.e. Let the archive show 25 lines of post headlines, while there are only 4 or 5 posts visible on the start page.

    AFAIK the loop doesn't allow me to specify parameters, there's only one "number of posts per page" setting in the options. I could manually respawn a query to retrieve the list of posts, but that's rather inefficient: Getting 5 posts first, throwing them away, getting 25 posts instead...

    What's the WordPress way of doing this? Kind regards,

    Christian

    Plugin ;)
    Try this one:

    It works well in 2.0, too and has a nice admin interface.
