  • Hello,

    Website:
    Blog

    I would like to see my old posts listed on website homepage with a button #old posts# like in my blog. There will be 10 posts on home page and for the previous posts I dont want to use the arrow but to click on # old posts # button. which is in Turkish Language Eski Yazilar in my blog.

    I will remove arrows:

    #nav-below {
    display: none;
    }
    How I will add old posts button in orange color?

    Thanks,
    Selin.

    .hentry.no-thumbnail {

    }

    Done.
    Thanks Andrew.

    The main problem was to move old posts under home page with a button as it is in my blog.
    I removed the arrows and keep 5 sticky circles on homepage and wuld like to keep all posts under homepage with a button named: old posts.

    What’s the criteria for posts to be “old”?

    I have made 5 circles sticky on homepage as an introduction for the business. In the mean time I will be posting recipes and when people visit the site I dont want them to leave because they do not see any entry. So all posts up to today and the upcoming ones needs to be listed on homepage with a Older Posts button like in my blog.
    That way I hide them but still it is easy to click and list all the posts.
    Hope it is clear.

    So the issue is your old posts are not appearing on the Home page at all?

    Currently yes. Because I hide the arrow also and limit my homepage with 4 sticky post and 1 normal post.

    In the dashboard go to Tools->Reading and change the number next to the “Blog pages show at most” text. This should control how many “circles” appear on your homepage.

    Ok. This makes all the posts appear if I write 50 for example.
    But what I am trying to do is to keep only 5 posts on homepage and other posts will be hidden on homepage and can be reached with Old posts button.

    This blog has the button in homepage orange color just above the plus sign

    What do you mean as “old”, what in your words is an old post that shouldn’t show on the Home page?

    I mean the posts, images already posted and there is a restriction only five circles will be on home page. The future posts will be also listed on home page bu hidden with that button.

    Is it not possible to make like in the blog?

    So, all but the first five posts should be hidden?

    Is it not possible to make like in the blog?

    Yes, but the most important thing when asking for these requests on WordPress.org forums is to make sure volunteers are absolutely clear on what you want.

    I think there is a misunderstanding.Sorry if I culdnt explained well but I have revised my wordpress.com blog and trying to make exactly the same on my website.

    5 posts on homepage these are sticky.
    All other posts will be under ~old Posts~button. When I press that button I will be able to see all posts.

    In your Child Theme folder do you have a file called “functions.php”?

    Sorry I’ve redacted that because it’s too many lines of code, please use PasteBin to share large amounts of code instead: http://pastebin.com
