WEBFI-WordPress-How to Create a Separate Page for Blog Posts in WordPress



WordPress displays your content in a blog format on the homepage normally but not all sites should be displayed that way. Some sites you want to display a welcome page or other custom content but can still find use for your posts. In this video we will show you how to create a separate page for blog posts in WordPress.

You would want to start by creating two new pages on your site one to be the new home page and another to be the page where you list your blog posts. For the home page you will want to add whatever content to it that you want someone visiting your site to see first. For the posts page you will want to leave that blank for your posts to be added to the page.

With the pages set up you will now go back to your admin area under Settings, Reading. From this page you can set your separate blog page by changing how your home page is displayed to a static page where you can set your home and posts page to the pages you want.

Now that you have set your page for blog posts you will need to ensure there is a method to find your posts. Under Appearance, Menus you can add the pages to your menu and ensure to include them in your menu and the menu display checkbox is checked. With that you now have a separate page for your blog posts in WordPress.

    I have a blog page now, will this video help me Add more blogs to that page? Or should I add another blog page altogether? Is that practical? I did not make my website, someone else did. So I have to learn myself how to maintain it by reading and watching on the internet to learn all this from scratch. I can't get in touch anymore with the person that did my site. So the future with my site is up to Me! Any other ideas would help if you can share. Thanks in advance!

    What theme are you using here? I want just a basic blogging theme but everything on WP seems to be geared more towards businesses/portfolios. I love the theme you have set up here

    This is so confusing when you're new. I know how to make a page but how do you add posts to it? I'm trying to make a static homepage with a couple posts on it. The home page is blank when you set it up, so how do I add posts to it that will show on my homepage? Is there a video to show that? I'm about to give up.

  • hasrizal on March 2, 2020
