    Hi

    I am a new to this but I have a question. We have just update your website with seventeen theme and made a few change. The change that I would like to do is to limit the number of post that the visitor can see to ten on the post page (new-event) and we have two drop down SAR and training. We have the recent post set to 5 and that is great. So I hope is clear 1. I would like to see only 10 story’s that the user can look down at. 2. Ones we add a new story the very last story will move to the archive and if some would to see it the user can go to the archive and look for the date.It would great there is plugin for this as I am not good a code.

    I hope this clear and I am in the right spot think you for your time

    Go to the admin Settings > Reading and change the number of posts to show to 10.
    That’s it!

    Thank you
    I did that all ready
    If you go to events you will see all the post to date. I am trying reduce the number of post ( 10 ) that you have to scroll on the page. If you would like to see more you can go to the sidebar and look under Archive

    It sounds like whatever plugin you are using for events did not honor the option in Settings > Reading. You should ask at the plugin’s support forum for help with that.

    Thank you for getting back to me but just to let you know I am not using any plugin at this time. I am looking for a plugin to help me. The theme is seventeen

    When I go to your link, I see 5 posts, with a link to another page, so I don’t think you “see all posts” or that you already set Reading to 10.
    You don’t need plugin to change how many posts are shown, as it is a core option.

    Thank you
    I maybe asking the wrong question because I am new at this terms
    1. Please go the menu and click on news and event
    2. You will see 16 story under that menu tap
    3. I would like to see only 10 story under any of the 3 tap New and Events , sar ,Training
    4. I would like to see if possible once you have ten story’s and the last once move to the archives on the right sidebar

    Thank you

    I’ve never seen a plugin for a dynamic menu like that. It doesn’t make much sense to me. I would put just the category name in the menu and then clicking it would show the latest posts for that category. Alternatively, you could put a latest posts widget in your sidebar. There are many plugins that supply different forms of that widget, like limiting to one category or showing thumbnails, etc.
    Menus make more sense being stable.
