I have a lot of posts on my website (over 800) and as such finding or remembering a post I wrote last year or five years ago can be a pain if I have to click through 5 or even 20 posts.

To simply this process, on any of the WordPress menus (Posts, Links, Categories, Pages etc)…

  1. Click on the Screen Options at the top right of the Dashboard screen.

  2. This opens a pull down where there is a section called Pagination. Overwrite the number of items per page (20) with a bigger number.

  3. Now all items are listed on the same page and there is no more clicking through page numbers.
