    ok, so i just set up my first blog and i'm wondering what happens when i add a lot of posts to a page? is there a way to have wp automatically move the oldest posts to new pages or is that something that's done manually? i know i've seen a thousand blogs and they all have 'previous entries" links but i don't know how to incorporate that into my site. thanks in advance.

    You set up the number of posts you want displayed on the page in Settings >Reading. Once you've reached that number of posts WP will automatically archive the older ones and should (if your theme includes it) display a "previous entries" link. Your theme should (if you want) also include links to archives in a variety of ways such as by month, by category, etc.

    Depending on your Theme you may not need to do anything.
