  • Resolved nshannon


    Hey all… just wanted to show off my new blog. Yep, it’s another Mommy blog, but with all the family living out of town it is the cheapest way to keep people updated on the kids.

    I do have a newbie question about archives. I’ve noticed that my posts wrap to a second page. I don’t mind that, I’m just wondering when they become available in archives only, and are no longer in the post list. Do they do that automatically? Or do they just continue to add pages?

    Thanks for any insight, and comments on the site!

  • Umm, I’m not entirely sure I understand your question, but I’ll attempt to give some insight. Your posts will never really become available in archives only. They will also be browsable in chronological order by going back in the pages on the main post listing. All posts are added to the archives the moment they are published, so they are also always accessible there too.

    Hmmm… Thanks for the answer. I guess I hadn’t seen that happening on too many other blogs. Meaning I didn’t notice that all posts were available on the main post listing. I only see a handful of posts on the main listing, and no “next page” link.

    I don’t suppose I mind… I guess I thought eventually they’d get weeded out.

    Wouldn’t that make the page(s) really cumbersome after… say… 3 years of posts are all listed on the main post listing?

    You are able to set how many posts are visible on the main page. In your admin section, click on the Options tab and then the Reading tab. There you can select how many posts/days to display. I think this is what you are referring to.
