NOTE:

I use plug in Yoast WordPress SEO: Local SEO have contacted them and they say plug in is working and resulting because I put blog in custom permalink. They could not support any further advice.

If I take blog out then my main blog page disappears.

  

 

Thank you in advance for a solution,

Tim Geiger

Hi Tim

 

I'm think I'm following you. Have you done the below.

 

To set a blog page which isn't on the homepage you can do this in settings>reading.

 

First create a new blank page called blog and save.

 

Then go to settings>reading and you'll see an option to set a static homepage and a static blog page. Select from the drop down an option for both, make sure posts is the blog page you just created.

 

In your permalinks remove the /blog/ from the permalink setup.

I know my home page is static but never saw that option for blog. I have blog page, do I have to make another or can I use the one existing?

 

I will try and let you know how I do.

 

Thanks,

Hi there, if you have one already made using a static page you can use that page from the posts drop down, you won't have to create another one.
