[resolved] Category pages only showing first 3 entries (6 posts)

    I have my blog set to show only the 3 most recent posts, which works great for what I want on my index page.

    My problem lies with my category pages. My category pages are now only showing the latest 3 posts in any given category. Can anyone help me figure out how to fix this??

    If you don't want 3, then set it to a different number? It doesn't sound "broken" to me.

    It just doesn't make sense to me. I figured the # of posts option would be for the index page only and the category pages would list EVERY post in a category. I know I have done this other CMS's so I figured there would be a way to do this with WordPress.

    There has to be a different way to then to set the # of posts to a different number. If what you're saying is true, then I would have to set that number to infinity to show EVERY single post in a category. I'm sure there is a better way to do this.

    Anyone else?

    The solution is to use a plugin to have different settings for different views. In WP by default the number set in the Reading options applies to ALL pages. Here are 2 plugins:

    The second plugin listed above worked great. Thanks again Moshu.
