Index of all posts

Like many blogs, you’ll find a reverse chronological listing of all posts, with their featured images in the Full Blog page, but if you want to browse quickly, you can search and sort all blog posts from the table below:

  • Clicking on the headings will sort the columns;
  • Entering text in the search box will create a filter based on words in post titles;
  • Entering phrases in quote marks will force an exact match for a phrase. For example, “Holy Week” will exclude posts tagged ‘Holy Spirit’ but not ‘Holy Week’.
  • If you want to see posts from a particular date, you can enter numbers in the search box e.g. 2018/05 will show all posts from May 2018;
  • If you’re on a mobile device and you click on a tag or category, then you’ll open the standard archives page listing — a reverse chronological listing of all posts in that tag/category, with their featured images; you can do the same thing from a computer by right-clicking and opening in a new window;
  • If you’re on a computer and click on a tag or category, you’ll see this listing filtered just for posts with that tag/category.
