How to Change the Number of Posts Displayed
By default, all WordPress archive pages show a maximum of 10 posts per page.
However, you can change them easily from your dashboard settings and show as many articles as you like.
The first thing you need to do is login to your WordPress dashboard and go to Settings » Reading page. Next, you need to change the value of ‘Blog pages show at most’ option to any number of posts you want to display.
Don’t forget to click on the ‘Save Changes’ button to store your settings.
Now your WordPress blog and archive pages will show the number of posts that you want to display.
How Many Posts Should I Display on My Blog Page?
Usually, bloggers display 10 posts per page as set by default. It seems an appropriate number to show from the user-experience and SEO (Search Engine Optimization) perspective.
You can display as many posts as you like, but we do not recommend choosing a number higher than 10 especially when you are not showing excerpts.
Yes, you can. WordPress believe in empowering users and giving them full control of their content. If you already have a domain name through WordPress.com, then all you need is a web hosting account. We recommend that you set up with Bluehost or any of these other WordPress hosting providers. During the signup phase, you will be asked do you have a domain or want to register a new one. Simply select the option that I have a domain name, and insert the domain that you registered at WordPress.com. Next thing you would have to do is change the nameservers to point to the hosting provider.
Mainly because the more posts you display on a page, the bigger the page size will be, which makes it slower to load.
This makes it easier for our users to browse the archives quickly, and it offers a better user experience.
We hope this article helped you change the number of posts displayed on your blog page.
