    Hey guys,

    So I am developing a site using WordPress, and everything is working great with the exception of one feature: I want the "blog" part of the site to be on one of the interior pages. The homepage is sort of a conglomeration of pages ande posts, but the actual dump of blog posts i want on a page linked from the navigation.

    Is this possible? Any tips?

    Thanks guys!
    Eric

    Definitely. Here's a how-to:

    Just to clarify a bit more. Once you have a "static front page" set up. You can make it the conglomerate you want using a page template that pulls whatever information you need. Setting up that page template will require a bit more work, but the information is available on this site.

    Hmm, thanks! I do have a follow up though, I have started the site, making my "index.php" my homepage, tweaking and altering to fit my design. Now, I want an interior page to display all of the posts. here is my design:

    Any ideas to make that blog link up top simply display the posts?

    As Lindquist said, you need to make a template for page 26, and put a 'loop' in it to display all the posts.

    Cool, I created a blog.php which essentially dumps all of the loops. How do I make that page 26 use that as its "template"?

    sorry for all the questions guys, im sure this is childs play

    should be a drop-down menu from the create/edit page view, that allows you to choose the template you've created
