You may have come to this page because you have a question about how to get around BONES THEORY. WordPress is somewhat limiting in that, so I wanted to take a bit of time to explain it.
1. Each post is ‘categorized’, which means that at the end of each post, it will say something like “Filed under Morning After Qs” or any other type of post we have around here. If you click on that “Morning After Qs” page, it will take you to a generalized WordPress page that will have searched the entire WordPress catalog for anything titled “Morning After Qs” etc. So if you clicked on the link at the bottom of a post that said “Episode Reviews”, it will take you to a WordPress list of all episode reviews being blogged about. It’s not ideal, as in theory, clicking on a link like that should take you to only the BONES THEORY “Top Five Tuesdays” or something of that nature. But the only way to do that, to have the links be internal only, would be to make the blog completely private or to disallow search engines to find it if someone were to search for it. I want people to be able to type in “BONES THEORY” and be able to link to this blog, so I can’t make it private. It’s not awesome for those of us who want to be able to quickly navigate to all of the Fan Spotlights, for example. So what I have done is created internal pages for each of the post types here at BT. On those pages, you’ll see a list of each post in that ‘category’. However…
2. WordPress will only allow one post per page, if that is the setting I choose. Because I don’t want 50+ posts on my ‘home page’ or ‘front page’, I have limited the site to one post per page viewing. WordPress is limited in this way. It is impossible to have a single post (plus the general welcome that always is there) on the main page while allowing multiple posts/pages to show up on a subsequent page. Meaning that if you search by Episode Reviews, you’ll get the most recent one and then will have to use the arrow at the bottom of the post to get to the previous episode’s review, etc. It’s not ideal, but in everything I’ve searched in WP, that seems to be inevitable.
Is there something else on the site that doesn’t seem to quite ‘work’ right? Comment below, and I’ll take a look at it!
