Stop Blogger Auto Pagination

I think we should start this tutorial off with what on Earth “pagination” is.

On the Internet, pagination is used for such things as displaying a limited number of results on search engine results pages, or showing a limited number of posts when viewing a forum thread.


There is a setting for pagination in Blogger if you go to Blogger > Layout > Click the Edit link on the Blog Posts box. There is a little box that you can change for the number of posts to display on your pages.


But what if the number of posts showing on your blog is less than that or even just one?

threw off my groove
I’ve had a couple of design clients run into the problem and at first, I was stumped. Nothing was wrong with the template, so what could it be? After doing some research on this, it turns out that Google is causing the “problem.” It’s important to keep in mind that a Blogger blog is not truly yours. Google pays for your server space, not you. It belongs to Google and if you are not using your server resources responsibly, Google may step in and take charge. May is a key word here because this doesn’t happen for everyone who uses resources irresponsibly.

What could be causing this?

  1. Drag and drop images into your posts
  2. Having really long posts (and a lot of them)
  3. Using too many images
  4. Directly copying and pasting images from other websites into your posts

What can be done to fix it?

  1. JUMP BREAKS!! Insert a jump break somewhere in the middle of your posts. Even if you are using summary posts on your homepage, still insert the jump break. It’s that little sheet of paper ripped in half icon when you’re editing a post:
    2.Only insert images into your posts using the upload image button in Blogger (looks like a little mountain picture) Don’t copy and paste images from different websites.
  2. If you noticed this problem all of the sudden, it may be because of your most recent post. Try checking the images there first. Did you upload all of them?

Also know, that an immediate change may not happen. You may have to wait a little while for your posts to return to normal.

    1. I had no idea before either! When the problem first occurred for one of my clients, I couldn’t figure out what was wrong. It wasn’t until I got a second client with only one post on the main page that I was able to find some research.

    1. Most people don’t until they encounter the problem themselves. It seems to be a fairly rare problem though =)

  1. My developer is trying to persuade me to move to .net from PHP.
    I have always disliked the idea because of the
    costs. But he’s tryiong none the less. I’ve been using WordPress on a
    variety of websites for about a year and am anxious about switching to another platform.
    I have heard good things about Is there a way I can transfer all my wordpress
    posts into it? Any help would be really appreciated!
