Making blog post show only on one page (6 posts)

    I have used WordPress as a static website for many years. Now finally it comes the need to use it as it is supposed to be, a blog. What I want is for my posts (* which will be about a specific topic and only this topic) to appear on the blog section. Now I understand I can create a static page, and manually just create entries on this page for that purpose but I think I want to dig in and figure the whole post category thing so I understand it in the future. Is my understanding correct in reading whatever category I label "blog" will ONLY show on the blog page? I do not want it on the front page, or any other page. Just the blog page.

    I think you really do need to review creating a static front page.

    Ok, I understand how to create a static front page. Let me explain a bit more in depth as the phrase
    "What I want is for my posts (* which will be about a specific topic and only this topic) to appear on the blog section"
    may not be explanation enough for you to grasp where I perhaps may be stuck. Here goes

    I HAVE A STATIC FRONT PAGE. This front page is NOT where I want the posts to show. I am only writing posts on one topic and would like EVERY post (*a short paragraph or two of words assembled discussing a topic) to show on a DIFFERENT STATIC PAGE (* a page in the website which has static content) that directly deals with this topic, which the front page (* the static page with un-(*or very little)changing information that users see first) does not.

    I will also include an example. Say my site is about honey. The front page will have information about the properties of honey, but I want to write quick posts about.... maybe places you can go to harvest from hives on a page that first reads "Check here for new places to harvest honey in the greater Cleveland area!"

    I hope this helps!

    I understood that. Now re-read the page I linked to above with special reference to the main posts page.

    First off, I re read my post and it might have sounded butthole-ish. If that's how it came off, SORRY

    Second, perhaps I should have read. I saw front page and immediately disregarded it. Once more I apologize. As soon as I wrote the first reply I figured out what needed to be done. Thank you for the prompt reply and may you indeed have a splendid day

    No problem. Glad to hear that you've got it sorted now. :-)
