    I have set up my wordpress blog with a static home page and a custom blog page (has a custom header), when i try to view the blog page it shows the static home page, if i set static home page to a template and set the blog page to nothing it shows the custom template page, not sure what i am doing wrong

    I'm interested too.
    For example, look on top of this site:
    First page is Home, that's a static page.
    The fifth menu item name is Blog.
    How can I achieve this?

    I looked days for the solution, but it's simple:
    Create an empty page, let's call it "News".
    Create a homepage, call it 'Home' or 'welcome'.
    Now go to admin options read and choose a 'Static page':
    1. Starting page is 'Welcome'
    2. Blogpage is 'News'.

    That's it. And in the adminstration of your pages you can change the order.

    OK I can't believe how thick I was being.

    There are 2 settings, one for the front page - make this a wordpress page that you have populated with your landing page content.

    The second is for a "Posts page: ". Create any old empty page using the wordpress editor. I created a totally empty page called "blog". Select this - voila - you have a blog URL and a CMS for a web site.

    Here is a screengrab - so you don't have to be as thick as I was.
