Support » Fixing WordPress » basic question about new posts

  • I’ve just started using wordpress and have set up about 5 static pages, one of which is the default ‘home page’. One of the pages I’ve created I’ve titled “blog” and would like all my posts to show up on that page. Even though I see how easy it is to write a new post and publish it (seemingly to a new page id every time I preview it), I don’t see how I can write new posts and assign them into a certain page. Can anyone help?

  • Think you are bit confused 🙂

    Pages are generally for static content…

    Posts are for your blog posts/news posts etc…

    Why not have a category template which displays all the posts posted to the blog category? That would provide a single webpage (note not wp page) from which to access all ‘blog’ posts.

    Also, look at the Posts page setting in Administration > Options > Reading.

    thanks guys. That was easy enough. For now all seems good.


    another question, since you guys were so helpful before:

    if you look at the site – you’ll see that the nav links on the left have a blank category between home and about us.

    When I set it up, I chose to show a static page, which I created without a name and selected because when I gave it a name I had two there – both which said ‘home’. But I don’t have two pages created – in other words, I only have the same number of pages as I do intended categories.

    Any ideas?
