How to Customize the Number of Posts Displayed on a WordPress Blog Page

By default, a WordPress blog archive page will display 10 posts per page. But you’re not a by-default sort of person! Here’s how to customize the number of posts showing on one page:

1) After logging into your WordPress dashboard, head over to Settings > Reading


2) Here, you can change the “Blog pages show at most” to any number that you want.


3) Remember to hit “Save Changes.”.

You’re done! Easy. Peasy.

Keep in mind that many visitors prefer to quickly scan through the archives to find an article of interest, so it might be beneficial to show more posts on one page. On the other hand, the more posts you have = the slower the page will take to load. Use your discretion and keep your readers in mind when you make the change.
