if one sets the Max. entries per page to 1 for a blog (to have one page per new blog entry), the "Latest entries" in the side bar also only showing 1 entry (the latest one). However if you set your max entries per page to more than 1, then it will show that number of "Latest entries" on the side.
is it possible somehow, to have the max number of entries per page set to 1 but have the full list of entries in the side bar in order, so users can click trough without going to the contents page?
I *know* this was noticed a couple of months ago already as well. Actually thought it was fixed then... :/ Must' slipped through the cracks. Should be an easy fix to set some kind of minimum though, which either of the overlords should be able to apply in a jiffy.
I could just make the latest entries set to a fixed 5? Maybe that is the best. I guess there's no real reason to vary that amount, although some would no doubt like the control to do that also.
That would be excellent; to be able to allow one to control how many entries one would like to view in the side bar
