[resolved] How to add a blog page? (7 posts)

    Yeah I know this sounds dumb because we're talking about wordpress... But I had to convert the homepage to a calendar, but still want to have another page that is in the "blog" configuration if that makes sense.

    I tried changing the format for a Page to make it work, but it's just a single page (you can't add posts in it).

    Here's my site, http://liveatwillowcreek.com/paintball/

    Thanks in advance,
    Noah

    Create a blank page no content name the page what ever you want and publish.

    Click on Settings>>>>>Reading and you must have selected you home to be calender post page select the blank page you created and save.

    Now when you post it will show on that page

    Could you clarify please? I want the homepage to be the calendar. I want a secondary Page to be a "Blog" page. Is that what you're explaining?

    In addition to the changes under settings you'll need to create your categories for posts then go to Appearance > Menu and add the categories to the menu.

    Changes under settings being setting the blog page to the homepage? I don't want that...

    Does anyone understand my question?

    1. Create a page "Blog"
    2. Go to Settings > Reading, Posts Page > select "Blog"
    3. Go to Appearance > Menu, add the category of your blog post(s) to the menu.
