Hey!
I want to limit my homepage to one blog post, but I want my category pages to show all the posts that go in that category or at least 5 to 10 posts.

Check this out:

- I want only one blog post on this. when I change this in the READING setting to ONE, it also limits my category pages.

I've set the READING setting to 5 posts, but it makes my homepage way too long.
If i set it in reading to 5, can i limit ONLY the homepage blog to 1 post?

So, I have a slight issue. 

I used the plugin and all worked well, but now I still have 2 posts on the homepage. 

goodness knows where it's coming from. 

I removed Custom Post Limits, but I see no change. 

My reading settings are set to 1 post, still I see 2! 

ugh! 

 

any ideas?

To ensure that it doesn't get overwritten in PageLines updates, please use the base theme:
