Setting up specific archives location... (3 posts)

    I have a client who asked me to combine her 2 WordPress installations into one. One was located at http://www.site.com, and one at blog.site.com. The www version was all static pages, so I exported those, moved the blog to the www version, then imported the static pages. The old permalinks structure was:

    /%post_id%/%postname%

    which I changed to:

    /blog/%post_id%/%postname%

    I then set the Homepage to be the static page named Home, as it was in the original www version.

    Is there a way to tell WordPress to show the archives for the posts at the /blog/ location, as if it were the old homepage on the blog subdomain? I see where it refers to a "Posts page" under Reading Settings, when setting a static page, and that it differentiates that from the Home page, but I don't see where you can set what that actually is.

    Thanks.

    I am sorry, archives is the wrong term.... I mean is there a way to specify that /blog/ is where the "Your latest posts" show, and to have it paginate the same way, ie. /blog/page/2/ will show the 11th through 20th most recent posts, etc.

    Thanks.

    Got my answer here, pretty nifty:

    For those who need it, I set up a blank page named Blog and set the "Your latest posts" to that, works like a charm.
