    1. Remember one thing you have to keep the post count same in your blog settings and pagination widget.

      There is a limit of 1mb from blogger side, only 1mb of images or text you can show in home page and you are exceeding that limit and that is the reason rest of the post is going on next page, there is not any solution, but you can try page break after 1st paragraph in every posy, may be this will help

    But.. is that possible to show the total comments near the title (.post h2 a)?
    To show the title, I just need to set the opacity of the title. But how can I set the total comment?

    For Example.. the title of my post is "how to setup photonic blogger template" and I want to show the total comments like (52 comments and linked to comment area)
