When it comes to customizing your Genesis child theme, flexibility is key. A common customization is to display a different number of posts on the first page of your blog compared to the subsequent pages. In this tutorial, we’ll show you how to display 4 posts on the first page and 6 posts on the remaining pages using a custom function.
Step 1: Understanding the Requirements
The goal here is to create a unique look for the first page of your blog by displaying only 4 posts, while the rest of the pages will show 6 posts each. This can create a visually appealing distinction and enhance user experience.
Step 2: Accessing the Functions File
To implement this customization, we need to edit the
functions.php file within your Genesis child theme.
Note: Always back up your theme files before making any changes, or work in a staging or local development environment to prevent any unintended disruptions to your live site.
