  • How can I change the URL for the blog main page from http:/ to http:/ I cannot do it through Permalkinks. Permalinks are turned on but they don’t effect the actual bit that is the “blog”.

  • That link is hardcoded in your theme, just take a look at your header.php file:
    <li class="page_item"><a href="" title="Home">Blog</a></li>

    In order to make to work – you need to have a Page with that title.

    What does one put in the Blog Page for it to work – or does the template take care of it for us (if it is written correctly …)

    OK I can’t believe how thick I was being.

    There are 2 settings, one for the front page – make this a wordpress page that you have populated with your landing page content.

    The second is for a “Posts page: “. Create any old empty page using the wordpress editor. I created a totally empty page called “blog”. Select this – voila – you have a blog URL and a CMS for a web site.

    Here is a screengrab – so you don’t have to be as thick as I was.
