    Hi there!

    I’ve just come across Spacious theme and it seems just perfect for what I’m looking for. But I’m a newbie and therefore have 2 questions that might be not that hard, however, I’ve got no idea on how to do.

    1) I need to create a pages system. I’m going to make a Movies website, but I want to have only 9 movies per page. At the bottom, there will be “Page 1”, “Page 2”, “Page 3”, and so on.
    I want a system that is able to detect that every new movie I’ll add to the website, after already having 9 movies added, it will make the last movie at the bottom be transfered automatically to the following page.

    2) Under every single movie, there will be a text that starts but gets cut, to make the readers curious so they’ll click on “Read more”.

    E.g.: James Cameron’s “Titanic” is an epic, action-packed romance set against the ill-fated maiden voyage of the R.M.S. Titanic; the pride and joy of the White Star Line and… READ MORE.

    Is there a way I can write the text just once and the system is able to automatically cut it, so I won’t have a lot of extra work?

    Guys, I’m sorry if it got confusing. I’m a coding beginner and I’m also not a native speaker, but I did my best to explain you the issues.

    Thanks a lot!

    Hi Angeloborsato,

    To get 9 post in a page you need to set “Blog pages show at most” in Setting-> Reading to 9.

    It the blog/archive page it will automatically display few words with ‘Read more’ button.
    You can check the demo here: https://demo.themegrill.com/spacious/blog/

    Let us know if there are further query.

    Thank you.

    Hi Bipin Singh. I’ve came across this answer of you searching in forum because I can’t get blog/archive page to be like it is supposed to in Accelerate Free theme 🙁
    It does display all the post content, not only the Featured Image, a few words and the Read More button.
    In fact i had to putt off Featured Image because Blog page was showing Featured Image and the whole post content, and then image was seen repeated.
    I’ve set in Reading settings: For each article in a feed, show Summary…
    Do I have to configure any other setting?

    Thanks in advance

    Natalia

    Hi Bipin Singh!
    I’m using Accelerate Free.
    Here is my blog: https://valenciawineconsulting.com/en/blog/
    and as you can see, it doesn’t show Featured Image, a few words and the Read More button; it shows the whole first post.
    In fact I had to remove Featured image because it looked like this: https://i.imgur.com/Vs1bp3z.jpg

    In WordPress general settings I configured Reading Settings as this “For each article in a feed, show summary”

    Is there any additional setting in your theme I forgot?
    Thanks in advance

    Natalia
