Limit number of posts on "Latest posts" home page


I have a blog ( with ‘latest posts’ as my home page. I’d like to limit the # of posts on that page as my blog will increase (and I don’t want people to have to scroll infinitely).

Is it possible to limit the # of posts on a ‘latest posts’ home page? Or will I need to create a static home page?

I’m looking to have 5 or so posts on the ‘latest posts’ home page - and then potentially have page 2, 3 4 and so on.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.


Hello there,

I hope you are having a good day so far.

You can limit the number of pages on the homepage by going to Settings > Reading and change, “Blog pages show at most” to another number.
