Most of the current templates available now actually does no longer heed to your above tutorial. im having troubles with the number of posts with most of the available templates because of the limit that is set by the template creator. do you have a tutorial How to Change the Number of Posts Shown on Homepage in Blogger inside the coding instead?

Hi Juan,


You may be referring to Dynamic Views :) Except for 'em, layout templates need this feature to control number of posts on home page. Some bloggers need only one post on home page, while others show multiple posts. So this option matters.


Blogger imposed restrictions on showing too much posts on home page, so though you specify 100 there, it won't show your latest 100 posts, but up to allowed number of posts on home page to prevent lagging and improve loading time.


As Blogger defines layout tags, template creator doesn't responsible for this limitation as they have not allowed to override that specification. So, we can't go with coding for it in a easy way.


Cheers...
