    Sorry if this has been gone over or it is already included and I am missing it somewhere but…

    I can’t find the option to limit the number of posts that appear on my Main page. Shouldn’t it just correspond with the number in my slider?

    How do I set it to just list what is in the slider and then have an <_Older Posts Newer Posts_> options at the bottom like Tumblr does?

    My website is getting quite cumbersome and slow to load for some people.

    thanks

    Moved to Support. Please post in the correct section next time. (Don’t Warnock yourself.)

    Go to Settings >> Reading >> “Blog pages show at most” and enter the appropriate number in the box.

    No. The pages are served up via PHP and the slider is served up via jQuery.

    You will need to hide the content for the front page. That has been discussed many (many, many, many) times in this forum. Take a look around and you’ll find the information you require.

    As far as the Older Posts/ New Posts item, you can use the “WP-PageNavi” plugin, which is natively supported by Graphene. Not exactly what you are looking for, but this is not exactly tumblr. You can probably find something in the plugin repository that will do what you are looking for.

    Some suggestions:

    • Show excerpts in front page, instead of full posts (quite frankly, I find it annoying when the front page of a blog displays full articles, especially when they are image heavy—if I want to read the entire post, it’s not that much trouble to click on it).
    • Make sure that any images you include are sized for your website, both in dimensions and file size. In other words, don’t include a 3000 pixel wide image that is 4MB in size in a web page. Use Photoshop or GIMP to trim those files down to something manageable.
    • Beware of adding too many plugins to your site. (“Too many” is a relative term. Three or four huge ones can be equivalent to a metric dozen or so smaller ones.)
    • Make sure your host is up to speed.

    Cheers,

    Aw man! My bad. please dont hit me with that light saber! -_-

    That was exactly what I needed! Worked like a charm.

    Also I am going to investigate my plugins. I think I went crazy and installed 40 or something. :O I would download around 5 facebook ones, try them all out at a time, etc. ROOKIE maneuvers left and right. Got rid of most of them.

    I have one for my google analytics but just ran across a place where it looks like graphene supports that!

    thanks for the help.
