Support » Fixing WordPress » Twenty Ten Seperate Blog Post Page

    Hi! I am designing the site http://beyondasana.org for a friend. She’d like the last page to feature blog posts http://beyondasana.org/breakthrough-blog that she can update herself, with the newest ones at the top.

    The pages are static but I wanted the “Blog” page to be able to easily be updated with shorter “blogs” (I guess these would be posts?), much like the default front page of wordpress or http://halakhouri.com/blog/. I can’t find where to change just that one page in twenty ten. The template drop down allows either “default” or “one column, no sidebar”.

    I’m relatively new to wordpress so I apologize if this is a relatively easy fix. I’ve looked at all of the dashboard features but I can’t seem to find it. Any guidance would be great.

  • I think what you want is a category archive page comprised of posts with excerpts and linked to full posts?
    WP does that for you and you can add links to any category page in appearance ยป menus.

    @beyondasana, easy. From the dashboard, create a page, in this case Breakthrough Blog. Publish the page, leaving the page content blank. Now, go to settings reading and there will be an option to set the front page to a static page or the most recent posts. Set a static front page, and select the page you want to display as your front page using the first drop-down menu. Next select the posts page using the next drop-down menu, selecting the Breakthrough Blog page you created in the previous step. Everything will update automatically after that.

    Thank you!!!! It worked! I had to relink the new fresh blog page to the menu, but I can see how the posts now automatically go to the page. You are the best, thanks!!
