Blog page looks like home page (4 posts)

    I recently figured out how to set my front page as a static page and my posts page to what I would like to be a blog page. My homepage looks just the way I want. However, the page I would like to be my blog page looks exactly like my homepage, but with posts at the bottom - even though, when I am in my page editor and I set my template to Blog, Left Sidebar - nothing changes and it still looks just like my homepage but with posts at the bottom. How can I get this page to look like a standard-issue blog page? Many thanks!

    Did you solve this? I have the same problem. No matter which template I use it's the same layout as the home page.

    Thanks for writing, yes I finally solved my issue (for the most part). I set the homepage as a static page (setting can be changed on the wordpress dashboard). Then, I created a page called "blog", and set the template as "blog" under the page attributes. My blog finally showed up that way, and my homepage was left alone. Hope this helps!
