    Hi,

    I found an issue that I don’t think was there before — when having a tag archive in the menu (like my Personal Favorites, for example – http://inasearchofbalance.wordpress.com/tag/personalfav/) you only get a certain number of posts showing underneath and then no “show more posts” or links to pages or anything to reveal the other posts in the archive.

    Naturally when a blog has 200-300+ posts you’d expect a certain tag (or category, probably the same issue) to have more than 10 posts attached to it.

    Can you please look into this?

    Thanks!

    The blog I need help with is: inasearchofbalance.wordpress.com

    Excellent, thank you!

    Btw, isn’t it easier to navigate to older posts with pages? Meaning on the home instead of seeing “Older posts” which loads an extra 10 for instance, you can just click on a page number and go directly — that would be much easier if you’re looking for a specific post that you know is currently 10 clicks away, but can be only 2 clicks away if you can just select page 10. Does that make sense?

    Yea, that would be great but WordPress.com doesn’t allow that. All the themes at WordPress.com has to follow the standard. :)

    Oh you’re right, they are all pretty much like that now… how strange, I’m fairly confident that I used to have pages before, is that a recent change?

    It has always been like that. You might have installed on your own hosting where you can do things as you want. On wordpress.com, you are limited to certain things.

    Well, my last theme was http://theme.wordpress.com/themes/triton-lite/ and it had pages — still does, see this one http://joshidaniel.com/.

    How is that an exception?

    Hi,

    This is the first time I noticed this. Thanks. While we were developing the theme, we were strictly told to “remain” within the WordPress “rules”. The paging isn’t a default behavior so I am guessing there was a special treatment with that theme. I will ask .com team on how we can achieve that.

    Thanks,
    Chandra

    Thanks for looking into ti! Please let me know when you hear something or when there’s any development… we’re all trying to make the theme better, I have interest in it as well :)

    Best,

    I heard from them. This is a theme specific feature. We can add that but this will change all the existing setup as well so it might not be a good idea to force others to use the same nav. Maybe we can add a theme option for that. Lets see.

    Thanks,
    Chandra
