I have wordpress installed in the root directory, so how do I make sure new blog posts get posted onto site.com/blog and give that page its own theme?
In terms of having your blog page as different from your home page, create a page called blog (ensuring the slug is blog), and a page called home, and then go to the site settings >> Reading and where it says Front page displays - set the home page to home and the posts page to blog.
In the case of having differently styled templates for the various areas of your site - create the templates and assign them to the relevant pages from the admin menu.
Start here for an overview of what's possible, and check in again if any of it needs explanation.
thanks! go tit workin
