    PS: I said I'm using 2.0.11, but I don't know. How do I check? The site is wolfenmann.com ...

    Hi all,
    I'm getting serious about blogging and putting up stuff that was on my site and blah blah :-)
    Well, my question is this: I've seen this thing about posts and pages, and my question is, OK, I won't use pages, I'll use categories. But when I make a new post, the homepage gets t-h--i---s long. How can I prevent that? Or does WP trim the page and archive the posts at a certain point?

    A thousand thank-yous, as some folks might say!

    It's also at the bottom of every page in your administration.

    Go to 'settings' and 'reading' and put a "number of posts" to display on each page.

    [edit]
    On second hand, seeing that you are posting essays, you might want to start using the more tag (which you can insert in when writing) or use an so that only the first XX words of each post are on the index and people can choose to "continue reading".

    Thanks a whole bunch, Gangleri... really appreciate it. Just don't have the time to figure all this myself! But here's one thing:

    "On second hand, seeing that you are posting essays, you might want to start using the more tag (which you can insert in when writing) or use an so that only the first XX words of..."

    You missed the word after "an", so what do I use? :-)

    Thanks in anticipation,

    I probably messed up the link code to the Excerpt Editor. There are more of these plugins, but I prefer this one.
