Change number of pages/posts displayed in WordPress

  • # July 19, 2013 at 7:18 am

    Hi there,

    I’m trying to change the default number of pages displayed in WordPress’s backend Pages/Posts section.

    At the moment it seems to be set to 20 items before the pagination takes over. I was wondering if anyone knew a hack to change this?

    I would prefer to have all the pages displayed on one long page instead of the pagination wordpress gives you.

    Thank you,

    Isn’t the default 10 (not 20)? You can easily change this in the admin: Settings – Reading, change setting for “Blog pages show at most”. If you don’t want any pagination, set it to an insanely large number.

    Hey @Senff thanks for getting back to me. This is in the admin/backend part of WordPress. Can’t seem to find an option to change this.

    Mine seems to display 20 was wondering if there was a way to increase this at all?

    Thanks, man.

    I think you can change the number of posts going to Posts ->Screen Options (which is on the top right).

    Go through your admin settings, you will find the field for number of posts.

    @Luchid is correct. It wasn’t fully clear to me that you wanted to change the number of posts it displays in the actual admin.

    @Luchid Ah man so simple! That’s just what i was after thank you very much – feel kinda silly now…
