There are over 200 posts tagged with the keyword "Apple."

Each tag page -- example.com/tag/apple/page/2/ -- shows 10 posts.

So there are 20 tag pages.

Is it possible to show all these 200 post (links) in one page? I don't want to show any of the excerpt -- just consolidate all those 200 links in one page.

Appreciate your help!

  • do you want example.com/tag/apple/ to show all posts, or a separate page?

  • When someone visits the tag page -- example.com/tag/apple -- he/she should be shown all the posts. No pages. Thanks, Milo!

This is what I would consider the correct solution, and is the solution alluded to by Milo's comment (if I am not mistaken).

function alter_ppp_for_tags_wpse_88337($qry) {
  if ( is_tag() && $qry->is_main_query() ) {

Using query_posts will cause two requests to the database-- the main query, and the query triggered by the use of query_posts. By using a filter on pre_get_posts you alter the main query before posts are fetched and thus only hit the database once.

    And if you want to target the "apple" tag specifically: if (is_tag( 'apple' ) ). Also, be sure to include && $query->is_main_query() in the conditional. Feb 25, 2013 at 19:47
  • S_ha_dum, you rock! That code works perfectly. Thanks a lot. Also, Chip Bennett, appreciate your response. Boy, you guys are genius. :)

Its possible. You need to modify parameters in query_posts(). Use:

query_posts('tag'=>'apple', 'posts_per_page'=>-1)

'nopaging'=>1 can also be used for listing all items. Check Parameters for detail.

    Do not use query_posts, ever. Modify the main query via pre_get_posts, create additional queries via WP_Query.

  • Now I am more confused -- should I follow Nilambar's advice or go through Milo's links. Also, not sure where to add these codes! Appreciate your help.

  • You should go through Milo's links. query_posts is pretty much always a bad idea. Just don't use it.

  • Do not use query_posts(), ever, for anything. There is always a better, more appropriate way to modify or create a query. Feb 25, 2013 at 19:51
