  • Ok, have just searched on keyword “search” and nothing returned.

    When searching a WP blog, is it possible to have the results returned in a listing style rather than in full article style. I’d rather see 10 or 20 per page, newest dates first. If so, how is it done.

    Thank you, I’m not following everything that you mentioned, just as long as it can be done, which it can. It’s a job for later on.

    I’m just using the web page wordpress and I can’t see where I can make any changes to scripts, in this case the search script. I’m not using my own hosting site.

    So, are you using for your blog? That’s a bit different (we’re the .org flavor, .com is the “we’ll host it for you” flavor). Check their forums at
