How to change the number of posts in the home page

How do I alter the number of posts in home page has been a question in blogger since long time ago. So there are two ways in which the number of posts per page can be defined.
  1. Number of posts
  2. Number of days
Number of posts
  1. Go to Dashboard > Settings > Posts, comments and sharing 
  2. Under Posts > Show at most
  3. Provide Number of posts to appear as number
  4. In the drop down between Days and Posts choose Posts.
  5. Save settings.
So now, you might see the number of posts you provided in the text box appearing on the home page.

Number of days
  1. Go to Dashboard > Settings > Posts, comments and sharing 
  2. Under Posts > Show at most
  3. Provide posts of the number of days that should appear on home page.
  4. For example, if I want posts from past 10 days to appear on this page, I would give 10.
  5. In the drop down between Days and Posts choose Days.
  6. Save settings.
So now, you might see posts from past 10 days to appearing on the homepage. 

Usual complaints?
  1. I do not see the selected number of posts appearing.
  2. Show at most for Number of posts not working.
Troubleshooting.

Checking if settings are proper
  1. Go to Dashboard > Settings > Posts, comments and sharing
  2. Under Posts > Show at most
  3. Check if you have chosen Posts or Days.
Checking for number of posts
  1. Number of posts settings isn't a magic thing to create posts on its own.
  2. Kindly check if you have posts greater than or equal to the number you have entered in settings.

What is Cloudflare?

Well we have that written all over Wikipedia. Let's go on with why Blogger users look for Cloudflare.
Anciently Blogger users used cloudflare for one simple reason. HTTPS for custom domains.

So what happens when you introduce cloudflare into your domain?
DNS Redirect.
Your custom domain will be configured with the proxy info provided by cloudflare and when the request is hit, DNS redirect happens.
DNS redirect is bad for the site's health. A number of reasons, but the most important is that some browsers, when it detects a DNS redirection, it thinks that it is a phishing site.
