Don’t choose a design that’s identical to what others that have a WordPress website use. It is tempting to try doing this to save time, but users won’t think much of it. You want your site to stand out from others.
You want no special characters visible within your URLs. They can make it hard for search engines to “spider” and should be removed. Try shortening all URLs to avoid overwhelming visitors. Try using only keywords.
Posts are always shown chronologically, until you say otherwise. You have to alter the dates to alter the order of the list. To do this, open a single post and look for the date near the top right. Click the date, choose a new one and save the post to alter its position.
Are there a lot of commenters to your posts? It can be hard to look through all of them, for yourself and others. Install a plugin that adds page numbers to the comments section. Your site will have more visual appeal and be easier for visitors to navigate.
