I'm looking to have a secondary blog on my site where the posts are shown on a second page rather than the front.
I am not a programmer, so if requires coding or modifying, it's beyond me.
I was told that Simply Exclude would be the first step for doing that, but I can't seem to get it to actually exclude anything. No matter the settings or what's checked off, everything still posts to the front page. I've tried different categories, tags, and even created a new dummy user and tried it as a different author, but it all shows on the main.
One thing I did notice though, is that if the plug-in is activated, clicking on the bottom of the front page to go to 'Next Page' of blog posts results in a 404.
Checking 'All Loops' for 'Override query filtering for Main Loop Only or All Loops?' instantly kills everything from showing.
