WordPress is pretty restrictive on how many results are displayed for paged results, archives, searches and specific date, category and tag queries. There are ways to change the number of results that are displayed for each individual variable, but it can be a pain to set up, because it requires custom-editing the source code for every one of those template files. An easier solution requires the use of a handy and easy to install and use plugin that goes by the name of Custom Query String — with “Reloaded” added on the end, since the author of moshublog.com updated it to work with the newer versions of WordPress.
I like Custom Query String because it’s easy to use. It’s also handy. If you want to limit the number of posts that give you tips on how to lose weight fast that appear in your RSS feeds and archives, you can do so with a few short clicks.
To use CSQ, install and activate, then navigate to Dashboard > Settings > CQS. You’re then presented with the following screen, which should be fairly self-explanatory:
At the top you can see the conditions I have set for my archives, monthly archives, yearly archives, category and search results.
Beneath “Add New Condition” are the options you can configure to your liking.
