    Hi: what I have is a wordpress.org SITE, and I want to add one BLOG to it, later on several blogs.
    Searched google, the documentation, the forums, whatever, with the title of this post, no answer, but “add new user”, “add new page” etc.
    Please, help.

  • Hi Erik,

    So you have this website now and you want to add a Blog section where some posts will be added? I just want to make sure that I understand what you’d like to do so I can point you to the right solution.

    You can go to multisite since you want more sites or you can create a blog section ‘page’ by using the settings in the Dashboard to create a page and then the posts are shown on a separate page.

    For that I’d create a page called home and then a second page called blog. You can leave them empty even if you wish.

    Login to your dashboard –> Settings –> Reading

    Select ‘static page’ under ‘Your Homepage Displays’ and set the homepage to the page called ‘Home’ and the posts page to ‘Blog’.

    Now your homepage will be whatever is in ‘home’ and your blog will be your posts.

    Hi Erik,

    Create a blog section page.Log into your WordPress Dashboard.
    Go to Pages->Add New. Let’s name it ‘Blog’ for easy identification.Then
    publish.

    Go to Dashboard->Settings->Reading.

    Select ‘static page’ under ‘Your Homepage Displays’.

    Select ‘Blog’ under the drop-down menu for ‘Posts page.
    This step determines where your blog feed appear.

    Select which page you want to show as your home page under
    the drop-down menu for’Homepage’.

    Set the no.of blog posts to appear when your readers click on Blog.
    Then click on save changes.
