Linking to Blog from Static Page (5 posts)

    OK

    I know how this is supposed to work

    1. Create a page, name it whatever, for example "blog".
    2. Go to Settings>Reading> Set Posts page to "Blog".

    This does not work for me. When I do this and I click on the link for the "Blog" it sends me back to my static page.

    I read something about changing about changing the default theme on the "blog page" to "blog" but under the default theme drop down box it doesn't give me that option, only contact, full width, or portfolio.

    Someone please help! This is driving me crazy.

    Which theme is active?

    Can you provide the URL of your site?

    Have you tried asking in the theme's support forum?

    Others seem to face the same issue: http://www.s5themes.com/forums/topic/blog-section-not-working/

    For testing, I activated the theme and find the same problem. I wonder how anyone can release a theme in which it is not even possible to have a Posts page working.
