I have a fashion blog and I am trying to change the way my posts are set up. Right now I have a blog page and all of my posts go directly to my blog page. The post show up from newest on top to oldest on the bottom. So every time I add a new post it goes directly above the older post. I was wondering if there was a way to have each post be on my blog page but with links. So instead of clicking on my blog page and all my post are automatically shown from newest to oldest, I would rather click on my blog page and then have picture links to each post. I would click on the title and picture of whatever post I want to see and it would direct me to that specific post and it would be that way for each post. Therefore, the only way to view a post would be to specifically click on the one I want to see. My website is www.jennyalves.com if you need to see how it is set up now and get an idea of how I want it. Please let me know how I can change this so that my site looks the way I want. Thanks!

Hello alvesjen88,

While the theme you are currently using does not allow for exactly what you are asking to do (I don't really know of any that do), you can certainly only display a snippet of each post instead of the whole thing.

In each post, simply find the place you want to add a 'continue reading' link. Once you find that place, click on the 'text' tab in the upper right hand of the post. This presents the post with all the code. Don't be scared of the code, it is a really simple change.

Find the place you want to end the snippet and insert the following code:
<!--more-->


This will cause all content below to not be displayed on the main page and there will simply be a 'continue reading' link for the visitor to click on.

You will need to do this for each post, past, present and future. It does look very nice and you will be able to see more of your posts at once so the visitor can click on the one they want.

Experiment a bit to find the best place to enter the code. If you start your post with an image and enter the code right after it, no text will display on the 'blog' page. They will still be ordered newest to oldest and in a single line from top to bottom, but you may want to see if that is something that works for you.

Kindest Regards,
Scott M
