    Hi
    I use Linen and I dont want eavery previous pst showing on my page in full. Is there any way of showing 2 posts in full and then my previous posts with a thumbbail image, a first paragraph and then a link to read more?

    Also, how do i add “you might like” with a thumbnail under a full post linking people back to other posts with related content?

    Cheers
    Jodi

    The blog I need help with is: underamexicansky.com

    Hello Jodi!

    …I dont want eavery previous pst showing on my page in full.

    You’ll want to add the Read More tag into your existing posts.

    Also, how do i add “you might like” with a thumbnail under a full post linking people back to other posts with related content?

    A related posts section is not a feature of Linen. Adding this feature to Linen isn’t possible on the WordPress.com platform, unfortunately :(

    Thanks for the info Scott. Is it possible to bulk add a read more tag into my older posts? (As otherwise this is a lot of extra work on old posts as I need to do this for each one)

    And I am sorry, I do have another question. If something is sticky and on the slider, it is a featured post. Is there anyway of keeping posts in the slider, but having a regular non-sticky post show on the front page? i like the slider to highlight other work, but I do want non sticky posts to show up if thats the last one I have written

    Cheers
    Jodi

    Hi again, Jodi,

    There isn’t any way to add the Read More tag to multiple posts at a time — sorry that’s not what you’re hoping to hear :(.

    If something is sticky and on the slider, it is a featured post. Is there anyway of keeping posts in the slider, but having a regular non-sticky post show on the front page?

    Unfortunately not. I understand it’s not exactly what you’re after, but you could try unchecking Don’t hide sticky posts from your Featured slider theme options.
