Support » Fixing WordPress » Adding separate blog page to a website

  • Resolved seeinfohere


    I’ve followed the instructions for creating a blog i.e. Add New Page and publish it, go to Settings Reading and select ‘blog’ for my ‘Posts page’ and clicked “Save” but get a “Page not found” when I try to access it from the Nav Bar.
    Grateful for any suggestion as to what I’m doing wrong/ or not doing….

  • Sorry, should have mentioned that the theme is Twenty Twenty and I’ve customised the heading.

    Oh, and the site is

    Try this,

    Permalink Setting > Choose Post name

    Reading Settings > select A static page (select below)



    Thank you Hanafi, I’ll try that route.

    Alas the Permalinks suggestion doesn’t work for me either. Any other ideas out there?

    Have you previously published a blank Blog Page? Are you also setting a static front page at the same time?

    Hi Esmi,
    Yes and yes.
    I’ve had a static front page set for some time but decided I need a separate blog.
    I created a new page called Blog which appears on my nav bar.
    When I went to Settings Reading I made sure the static front page was listed as and the Posts page was Blog. And I clicked “Save” but I still get a File Not Found Message when trying to access Blog from the nav bar.

    Have you actually published any Posts yet?

    No I haven’t. I’ll try that and see what happens.

    Esmi, you are brilliant and thank you very very very much. I didn’t realise that I had to write posts under posts, not pages! Once I used the correct route it worked perfectly…..
