    Hello, I know I am just overlooking something simple but I just cant figure out how to get different posts to appear on different pages.

    I am making posts to appear on the page Recipes on my site but i cant figure out how to get them onto my Recipes page.

    Create a blank page and call it “Recipes”, then go to Reading settings and select that page as ‘Posts Page”.

    There is already a post “Recipes” in your site. so either create a page with different name or remove that post and create new page with the same title.

    Thanks Prasanna. I already had the Recipes page set as the posts page. The problem was the posts were in the category ‘Recipes’ and will only show on that page if i put them in the category ‘News’.

    How can I change it so that posts put in the ‘Recipes’ category will show on the posts page page? I know this is probably so simple, but i just cant figure it out.

    Select “Recipes” category on “Graphene Options –> Front Page Options”.

    Thanks again Prasanna.

    How do I now get my posts on ‘Recipes’ page to appear like here: http://pcpinoy.com/. I want to just have the first few lines of a post, the picture and a read more link to the full post.

    I’m having a bad day, I just can’t figure out the most simple things.

    Oops! Here is the solution ,

    Go to ‘Graphene Options –> Display –> Excerpts Display Options” and tick Show excerpts in front page. 🙂

    WordPress uses default text size to show excerpt as well. You can change it’s size in “Graphene Options –> Display–> Text Style Options –> Content Text –> Text size”

    Excerpt length works on word count. The default excerpt length is 55 words. To increase or decrease excerpt length, add this to your child theme’s functions.php

    <?php add_filter('excerpt_length', 'my_excerpt_length');
    function my_excerpt_length($length) {
    return 40; }
    ?>

    It shows 40 words in excerpts. Change this to some other value of your choice.

    Remember, GIYF.. 🙂
