How to reduce the number of posts on the front page?

Hi! I’m wondering how to reduce the number of posts on my homepage from 10 to 5. Thanks.

You can set number of posts to display on front page via WordPress dashboard >> Settings >> Reading >> “Blog pages show at most”.

Let me know if you need any further assistance


I changed it to four, but I’m still seeing more than that.

Make sure that you changed value for “Blog pages show at most” and not “Syndication feeds show the most recent”.

If this is not the case it might be some plugin that controls how many posts appears. Or maybe you are using some cache plugin, so you need to clear your website and browser cache before you can see any results.
