Adding a New Template (8 posts)

    I am trying to add a blog within my existing site. I read online that I need to copy the index.php and create a blog.php. I have the index code, but cannot figure out how to create a new template.

    Can anyone help?

    Thanks!

    What do you mean by "add a blog within my existing site"?

    Like that.

    We use WordPress to host our Association website, and now we want to create a blog for our company. I want to be able to navigate to the blog page from my existing website. I guess technically I want to recreate the WordPress home page elsewhere on my site.

    I am very new to WP.

    Is this a wordpress.com site or a self-hosted WordPress install?

    Self hosted WordPress install

    So are you looking to add a Posts display to your existing WordPress installation? Or do you want to install a second, separate, copy of WordPress within the same domain?

    I guess an additional posts display would work best.

    That way I can have a "Blog" link on my menu bar similar to my News tab:
    http://www.strategicmaterials.org/news/

    Could I do this by adding a new category under Posts?

    That would be one way of approaching it. You could also look at a page of posts.
