@lukanuga – You can create a new page and select the blog template from the meta box on the right side of the editor and publish the page. You can add the page to your menu though custom menus or you can set it as your home page though dashboard -> setting -> reading. On the DEMO you can see the blog page.
I am currently moving our site over and using the ‘leaf’ template. I assume from this response that there is no way of having a button to click through to a new page at the bottom of the home page?
On the demo there are various categories on the home page, such as featured posts, space, Tech etc. Can you explain how I can add these sections into my blog. I am also keen to change the layout of the links to the blogs in this section something similar to the demo so the 1st blog is all the way across, the next 4 are bunched into a category and so on.
