  • Right now the options are:
    Days
    Posts
    Posts Paged (?)
    What I would like is one for
    Current Month
    And have the front page show posts from the current month. Of course, if there are no posts for the month yet, have it default back to the posts for the previous months.

    Hey Matt, hear from “Mom” lately? =D

    That exact option is not available; yet, anyway.
    “Of course, if there are no posts for the month yet, have it default back to the posts for the previous months.”
    Um, 30 days then?

    I posted something familiar a few days ago:
    http://wordpress.org/support/3/13633
    and Beel said he would perhaps someday eventually if he found the time 🙂 take a look at it. I miss it too. In the case of a blog that works mostly with months (index.php?m=”) it would be logical to start the website with a page that lists all the posts from the current month.
    For someone who started blogging with MT it’s really odd to not have that option.

    Just a side note: why on the earth would somebody “maltreat” his visitors by serving up 30 posts on the front page??? Whenever I see a page like that I’m panicking and hit the Back button 🙂

    I posted an idea for the current month in the thread above. You could get creative and do an else statement if there are no posts for the current month.

    “by serving up 30 posts on the front page?”
    Um, up to 30 days, not posts. Looks like Beel’s suggestion should work nicely, I think?
