Have you ever thought to change number of posts per page for your WordPress blog? For beginners, it’s not an easy task to do because by default WordPress shows 10 posts on a single page which is not much friendly to beginners. It’s the matter of your choice that you want to show how many posts on every single page?
Newbies have a question as how to edit homepage in WordPress? They seem it hard to do but let me tell you that you just need to know about something more in detail about WordPress and you can show the number of posts according to your own wish.
How to change number of posts homepage WordPress within in two seconds?
Here in this tutorial, I am going to let you know about another feature of WordPress which shows that you have freedom to do anything using this amazing CMS. You can change number of posts per page just by following some steps.
Step 1). Just log in to your “wp-admin” area.
Step 2). Find “settings” in your dashboard to open.
Step 3). After opening the settings you have to open “reading settings” for the completion of your job. As shown in the screen shots after the opening of reading settings you can see many boxes to fill. The first one is to adjust your “Front page display” for your website. In most of the cases, you should choose to display your latest posts to display our homepage.
As you can see that there is another option to choose with which you can adjust any particular page, posts page to display as the homepage of your website. It’s the matter of choice.
Step 4). Here is the main step you need to follow to change the posts to display at the homepage of your website. You can see that you are asked to choose “Blog pages show at most”. Here you will find “10” by default and you can change according to your wish. I have selected “6” posts to display at every page of my blog.
You will find many websites with the different number of posts to show at their pages. But let me tell you that if you are going to show excerpts with your posts then you shouldn’t show more than 6 posts because it will increase page size and may increase the loading time of your website.
I must tell you that you shouldn’t check “search engine visibility” option because if you do that then you are signaling search engines not to index your website.

It’s hard to decide that how many posts you should show at your every page of your WordPress blog. But let me clear your doubt by telling you that if you are using excerpts of your post to display then you can show at most “6” posts per page. Showing “5” posts per page is a great choice.
