On my development server I have a blog and in AsideSecond I have a Recent Blog Posts widget. The blog shows only the first post and I can click through the list of posts in the widget. I can add new posts without issue. Works great.
But on the production server:
1. The blog page shows all posts with the more link, not just one. I want just one like in dev.
2. When I add a new post, after I click save and go to Manage Blog to look at the list, the post appears twice. One is published and appears on the blog page and one is unpublished and I have to delete it. I published the duplicate to see what
would happen and it gives me the permalink error and renames it (expected behavior). If I click on Publish instead of save the first time then it publishes the one post and it's copy and gives me the permalink error.
3. Several times while experimenting with this a new blog will appear called "Blog". It's happened too many times for me to believe I accidentaly created it.
I've deleted all posts and blogs several times and recreated them but it doesn't change.
A side note: I never get the "Newer...Older" links in any blog I've created. Is there a magic number of posts you need to have before they appear? If so, can this be adjusted?
