Increase blog post Limits Visible on the Blog Summary page


erinash

Question

Hi There!

We are currently working on the Blog portion of our new site, and we are hoping you can help us!

Is it possible to increase the maximum number of blog posts visible (we've already maxed out built-in option of 20 shown) on the Blog Summary page without having to navigate to "Older Posts"?  Our site is not currently public, but we are creating it using Squarespace 7.1.

If you use an actual summary block instead of the blog listing page, which is not really a summary, you can have 40 entries and then chain blocks together on the same page using category filters. I have a blog summary page with 80 posts on it. Summary blocks can be designed all kinds of ways with code unlike an actual blog listing page. When you use blog summary blocks the actual blog goes into the unlinked section of your site.  To use create a new blank page add a section then click insert point and add a block. I use 7.0 but my page should give you a look at what they can do for you:

and here is a tutorial for using summary blocks in 7.1

Thanks @derricksrandomviews for the work around, but I'd like to use the actual Blog Summary Page instead of Summary blocks. We've already got the entire page styled and laid out exactly how we want it aside from the number of posts showing. Seems like there should be a way to do this.

Unfortunately there is not, no code solution either. The summary block method, and there are styling plugins for those as well, is the only workaround available at the moment. 

Do you happen to know if there are styling options/plugins for making the summary blocks full width to mimic the layout of the blog grid summary?

That doesn't require a plug in, it is one of the choices you have with a summary block layout, list the posts as opposed to displaying them as a wall or grid. . Its a very simple change to make in design settings of the block. I can adjust the image size, make it bigger or smaller as well as the aspect ratio. I have far more control over a summary block than I do the actual blog page display.

What I'm specifically looking for is full bleed/width functionality for the summary blocks, I don't see that anywhere and haven't figured out a way to adjust the width beyond the built-in columns/gutter.

You set the design of the block for list, and if you have an image enlarge it. You can set the text for large as well. This will make each excerpt  wider than a blog page post in a list.

If you want a post in a summary block to be full bleed, set the block for carousel with only one item per row, aspect ratio 3:2 standard. Number of items per block still can be at 30 with blocks chained together on the same page which allows as many posts as you want on that page with a bit of category filtering per block.
