Blog page not showing posts
I created a static front page called Home. I also created a separate page and set it to be the posts page. However, when I create new blog posts, they do not show up on the that page. Did I miss a step?
The blog I need help with is egsd.wordpress.com.
This is a one or the other situation. You have two choices on any blog
(1) All posts on the front page ie. the Home page. By default that is the URL of the site.
(2) A static front page http://en.support.wordpress.com/pages/front-page/ and all posts on a different page.
By default the front page of your blog displays all published posts (not pages) in reverse chronological order, with the most recently published post on top. That is for the convenience of your returning visitors, who come to read your latest post, and who are not likely to be happy with being compelled to click through the same static page with the same blah, blah, blah on it every time they visit the blog looking for the latest post.
However, if you do not want all the posts to show on the front page, then you can create a static front page called for example “Welcome” for your site and a “Blog” page for posts. Create your pages first
After you do that you go to > Dashboard > Settings > Reading and make the designation change and click “save changes”.
A static page (select below)
Go to http://egsd.wordpress.com/wp-admin/options-reading.php and make the required change.
Front page displays
__ Your latest posts
Hi. Which page did you set to be the posts page?
I have a page called Home that is my designated static front page. I created a page called Think for the blog posts and under Customization and Static Front Page, I designated that as the Posts pages. When I go to Pages, under the title of that page, it says “Think <i>Your latest posts</i>”.
I did read the directions for the Affinity theme and I believe I followed them correctly. I then created and published 3 blog posts. The posts do not appear on the Think page.
OK – figured it out. I created a new page called Posts and set it as my Posts page. They displayed just fine. When I tried to add that as a panel in the Affinity theme, it stopped displaying posts.
I don’t see them displayed on the front page of Affinity though. I’m not sure whether Affinity would normally do that. If that’s what you’re after though, let us know and we’ll see if we can help you find a way to make it happen.
