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

Start by ensuring you have a page you would like as your home page published on your site as well as a page, normally empty, that would be replaced by a list of your most recent posts.

Next, you will want to go under Settings, Reading and change the homepage display settings to a Static page. For the Homepage you would set the page you would want to appear when someone goes directly to your URL. Set the Posts page to where you would like your blog posts to appear there. Not all themes have the same settings so if you do not see this, you would want to check under Appearance, Customize.

With the page changes set, you would want to add them to your menu as they are not automatically added to your menu. Under Appearance, Menus you should see the two pages you set have text next to them noting which one is the posts page and which one is the front page.

Depending on your theme, if you edit the page there is a page template for specifically the home page you can set when editing the page itself. Other themes you would want to take a look under Appearance, Customize for custom settings. If neither of these are options, we would recommend taking a look at Beaver Builder to customize your site’s display.

    This i s what I am looking for…..thanks

  • HealthyBodyify on May 2, 2021

    Yes it works like that but the posts do not have thumbnails. Or do I have to make images featured?

  • Chris Spaulding on May 9, 2021

    OK. That is understandable. But, What I am looking to find out is this: What if one day I want to create a post that I want to appear on the blog page. Then the next day I want to create a post that appears on a different page I created. Is there a way to do that without opening up the other page and just editing that page?

  • lizandvk on May 11, 2021

    Great tutorial! Simple, straightforward and helped take another step forward! Thanks so much!

  • Ruks Jo on May 24, 2021

    Hi thank you for your tutorial.. I have a quick question. IS there anyway I can assign which blog posts are visible on which page in the navigation?

  • Amir Mohammed on May 26, 2021

The main section of the blog is been align with the header, I want some space between the navigation bar and the main section where all the post are been displayed how can I do it, it would be a great help if could help me out. I am really thank full for your article

    Exactly what I was looking for! Kudos!

  • hannes on June 28, 2021

    omg thank u so much! 😀 <3

  • Hart Q on July 6, 2021

    Thanks a lot!

  • Crazy Collections on July 12, 2021

    Great informative video indeed! I am creating a custom homepage and in this process I’m trying to make a /blog/ page to show all my posts.

    But, when I tried to create /blog/ page, the slug was like /blog-2/.

    I checked /blog/ page and it was redirecting to the home page.

    I never created /blog/ page before and I didn’t redirect it.

    I checked all the redirections and there was no sign of /blog/ page.

    There was no redirection rule in .htaccess either.

    I deactivated all the plugins and checked one by one but still the issue persisted.

    I also saved permalinks again but no change.

    When there is no page shown in the dashboard, then how is it redirecting to the home page.

    I cleared the cache but still the issue existed.

    I seriously want /blog/ page as I don’t want to settle for /blog-2/ page.

    Could someone please enlighten me? Thanks in advance.

    Great tutorial, very clear. But what if I want my website to have more than one page for different blogs? Is it possible?

  • epicwolf3 on August 30, 2021

    This was really great for starting out a blog page on an otherwise static website design. I did still have the question of how to format the blog page so that the content would work with something like IFTTT + Buffer, so that I could make a blog post to social media. Not sure how to convert a static looking designed page into that, but will look to see if you have additional tutorials for something closer to that. Thanks.

  • Emmanuel Eban on September 3, 2021

    shes amazing

  • Alan Judson on September 14, 2021

    Thanks – so easy to follow!

  • CLARICE SMYTH on October 10, 2021

    Great info. What I was hoping to learn in this video was how to edit the layout of your Blog Page – not the individual blog posts. I already have a blog but the blog Page is so generic and I want to edit it without losing all my posts if possible. I have WP/Astra/Elementor. No one seems to have a video on this.

  • Erin Nelsen on October 19, 2021

    Thank you! This really helped!

  • Marsha Eileen on October 20, 2021

    Question – what if you need to create more than one blog page? Say you are a food & lifestyle blog and you want one blog page that houses all of your food content and one blog page for all of your lifestyle blog posts?

  • Bill's Tubes on October 29, 2021

    Great tutorials, I've watched a few and love them. Straightforward and easy to follow!
    I have a question Im hoping someone can answer. Build the blog page following all your steps and it works well, but when I click on one of the actual blogs, it goes to a page that I cannot seem to edit. Its super ugly and needs some love! It's like the main blog archive page, Ive looked at the URL and the slug it points to is: "11885-2" and searching for that page under all pages brings up all the blog posts, but not one a separate page that I can customize. Its like the landing page for all the blogs.

    Thanks un advance if you can help:)

  • Spiritual BFF - Your Good Ju-Judy! on November 3, 2021

    This worked so well! I accomplished my objective in the first try. Thanks for such an excellent explaination!

  • Nekoromancer on November 4, 2021

    what if i want to have more than one blog post on the page?
    one for subject a, one for subject b and other for subject c each divided?

  • Make It on December 4, 2021

    Brilliant. Fast, precise, and straight to the point. Thank you.
