How do I move my blog to a seperate section and make a static homepage? (7 posts)

    Basically I want to set up a static page for my blog's home page and then "move" my blog to the /blog/ directory without messing up the permalink structure for articles like:

    http://mydomainname.com/article/

    instead of:

    http://mydomainname.com/blog/article/

    This is an example blog that is doing pretty much the same thing I'm looking to do.

    http://notaproblog.com/

    Thoughts?

    Setting -> Reading in your admin panel.

    But how would I do it so that the /blog/ URL that I create looks the same as my homepage now though?

    I don't want just a list of recent posts. I like the way it is now for my blog I just want a new homepage.

    I feel like that changes things as I was aware of the setting > reading option in my admin panel by just setting a page as the home page...

    Ideas?

    Did you following the instruction in the doc I linked?

    If you did then you would have a front page using a template that you've set and a /blog/ page exactly the same as what you had before.

    To clarify:

    Step 1: I just create one page as "Home"

    On this page I add the content I want to it like my newsletter sign up form etc. a video w/e

    Step 2: I create a second page called "Blog" and put NOTHING in it.

    This page then should display my blog the way it is now?

    Is that right?
