    I've followed the instructions for creating a blog i.e. Add New Page and publish it, go to Settings Reading and select 'blog' for my 'Posts page' and clicked "Save" but get a "Page not found" when I try to access it from the Nav Bar.
    Grateful for any suggestion as to what I'm doing wrong/ or not doing....

    Sorry, should have mentioned that the theme is Twenty Twenty and I've customised the heading.

    Try this,

    Permalink Setting > Choose Post name

    Reading Settings > select A static page (select below)

    Thanks.

    Alas the Permalinks suggestion doesn't work for me either. Any other ideas out there?

    go to Settings Reading and select 'blog' for my 'Posts page' and clicked "Save"

    Have you previously published a blank Blog Page? Are you also setting a static front page at the same time?

    Hi Esmi,
    Yes and yes.
    I've had a static front page set for some time but decided I need a separate blog.
    I created a new page called Blog which appears on my nav bar.
    When I went to Settings Reading I made sure the static front page was listed as Seeinfohere.com and the Posts page was Blog. And I clicked "Save" but I still get a File Not Found Message when trying to access Blog from the nav bar.

    Have you actually published any Posts yet?

    No I haven't. I'll try that and see what happens.

    Esmi, you are brilliant and thank you very very very much. I didn't realise that I had to write posts under posts, not pages! Once I used the correct route it worked perfectly.....
