Support » Fixing WordPress » Blog layout

  • Hi Guys,
    Complete newbie here i have created a blog page, but before i go to far with it what is the best layout for a blog. Ie are all the blogs on a different page or are they all on the same page that just jumps to that relevant section?(how is this done)
    What are the benefits of either way. Is there a good plugin that will do most of the work for me? Im begining to think a table of contents with hyperlinks may be the way to go, it just looks boring.

  • You’ve asked an interesting question that — leads into the vast subject of WordPress taxonomy. — In plain English, taxonomy means how your posts are organized.

    A digression: As you know, WordPress is scalable. From small DIY websites and blogs, to major media outlets. For example, the Washington Post is built on WordPress. How does WaPo organize, display, and archive the vast number of news articles (WordPress posts) it generates on a daily basis? The answer: taxonomy.

    But back to basics:

    If your website has a right sidebar — put the “Recent Posts” widget in the right sidebar. — Yep, as stated it will list your recent posts.

    You can also put the “archive” widget in the right sidebar. — The archive widget will list your posts according to month and year.

    You can also organize your posts according to “category” and “sub-categories.” — Which are the doors into WordPress taxonomy.

    Thanks very much linux.
    Are there any user groups i should know off say if i was looking for help ie somebody actually help me with what i want to achieve. I have created a blog page but know it just looks like a post that the blog page should link to. How would i for instance have a good looking blog page that links to the article pages based on the theme and headers etc i have made kinda uniform on the site.

    I know its alot

    You could use a “sticky post” as your blog’s front page.

    See: https://wordpress.org/support/article/sticky-posts/

    As well, as stated above:

    Your blog needs a right sidebar.

    Then add two widgets to the right sidebar: Recent Posts and Archives.
