No not that* =P….although that* would be some kind of record I’d imagine and not one which one would want in succession!
I’ve been a bit busy the past few days with non~blog things but I have been for the past few days actively searching for a new theme to use here @ WP and the reason was that after a recent eye opening event I’d begun to want the posts here to appear more like brief summaries instead of the full blown posts appearing, unless of course if you were to click on one. So I’ve been searching through the massive inventory of themes which WP offers and to my initial dismay I wasn’t able to find one which would be completely compatible with how my layout works now with just the body of the post area changing to post summaries. It seemed that no matter which theme I previewed there would be some sort of snag such as my widgets not being properly displayed or disappearing altogether or my header looking odd or no widgets (they’re gone =O!!) or…well you get the idea. But then common sense suddenly struck me and I looked into my current theme which is the only one I’ve ever used here and with a quick search of other blogs also using this theme I discovered that one such blog actually had their posts appear as summaries before you click on them to ‘read more…’ and then realized that it’s all in the post formatting which you can set permanently in settings or you can also set them individually per post as you wish. It contains choices such as: standard, aside, image, video, quote, link and yeeees one called gallery which does just what I wanted!!!
So I’ve now changed my settings so that all posts here forth (unless I change it during the actual post launch which is always a possibility for tinier posts) will appear as summaries and one neat part of it is that there’s actually an image count which appears atop each post summary….like the time recently when I created a post containing 924 photos =P!! I had no idea it was that big?!? Anyway the goal was to have entire posts not appear readily unless one chooses to see it and that way I’m thinking it’ll be a whole lot easier to navigate the site =D.
Okay but here’s the catch, you always know there’s one right. It seems that there’s no bulk action option to edit posts in terms of their format settings so it’s pretty funny (no not really XD!!) that I’m going to have to do this process post by individual post and after editing one post I’ll then need to return to the posts page and select the next post and edit its format to gallery and so on and so forth. And I’m just thinking that I’ll also need to select page numbers in the post screen as I progress from page one to two to three and so on all the way up to page number 107 which is how many I currently have here. So that’s 20 posts per page times 107 pages =O!!!! This is going to take awhile and that’s a true understatement. So for now I’ve done about the first two pages which equals to the latest 40 posts here as they now will appear as summaries for easier navigating but until I’ve completed the process or at least are much further on I’m thinking that I’m going to keep each web page to a limit of just 5 posts so that way if one were to click for more posts beyond that point they won’t be bombarded by more posts automatically appearing where some could include 100’s of photos in them which may or may not upset one’s browser as they’ll still appear in the standard format setting where the entirety of the post is shown, that is until I’ve gotten around to editing them all. That is going to take a very very very long time….maybe I’ll just do a few a day or so I dunno? In any case at some point in time into the future I hope to have all posts set to the gallery format setting but until them I do ask for your patience =D.
So as far as the title atop and what that actually means, well it’s what my WP post editor screen is saying to me right about now as I attempt to edit each individual post one by one to the gallery setting……yup do that to me 2049 more times!!
Haha hindsight speaks in volumes here as if I had only known about this little post format setting years ago when I first arrived here lol (-∀-`)。
