Hello and welcome. With this video, you’ll learn how to create a separate page for blog posts in WordPress. By default WordPress puts all the blog posts on the home page, but what if you want to create a static home page and a separate blog page? This tutorial will show you how to do that. First thing you need to do is to go to the admin area of your site and create two pages. My first page will be Called Home and and on the right look for the page attribute and see if there is a front page template. If there is you want to select that for your homepage.
This changes how the page is laid out from the other pages of your site. I’m using the twenty twelve theme so it does have that. Now I want to remove any discussion items for the home page so I’m going to uncheck allow comments and uncheck allow trackbacks and pingbacks on this page and I’ll click publish Our next page will be called Blog. See if there are any attributes area have a template for the blog and choose it if it does. Now lets disable comments and trackbacks on this page as well.
click publish on that Now we need to tell WordPress which one is our home page and which one is our blog page. I’m going to go into settings–>reading and change the front page displays as and choose a static page and I want to choose Home as the page for my home page. I’m also going to pick Blog page to show the posts on. One more thing we need to do and that’s to add a menu. So I’ll go to Appearance–>Menu Create menu name and click save. Now I want to select the two pages that I just created and click add to menu and click save menu And after I save changes, I can refresh my site and see that I have a static home page here and when I click on Blog page, all my posts are showing up here.
