how to use pagelines as normal blog


Question

Posted · Report post

hello guys, first time poster here.

 

ive paid for the pagelines premium. HOWEVER have been having this problem for a few weeks now and im sure there is a simple resolution!

 

 

my website is = www.clipads.tv

latest wordpress version / host is hostgator

 

basically im simply looking to post on the website as a normal wordpress blog setup where i can submit posts, and people can scroll through the posts etc

 

my website is essentially a static page, but i have made a page called "blog" on wordpress, and now im trying to figure out how to get posts to appear on there.. the rest of the site is set up on pagelines, but i just want to be able to submit posts on this one page, and have them archived like a normal blog.

 

all help is appreciated.

 

thanks

Thank you Batman.

 

Also make sure you've set the static homepage and blog page in settings > reading from the wp admin area.

Hi there, in your screenshot you've not set a front page. If using that option you need to set a static front page from the drop down and then the blog page.

 

If you've not made a front page, make one quickly and save, then select it from the drop down. You can go back and add/edit all the drag and drop elements later.

thanks for replies

 

so i followed the advice, and create a page called "home" i then set that as the homepage under the "static" section, and the posts page i chose my page called "blog"

 

after these changes i go to the home page, and add the "post/loop" tool, but it shows no posts still on the home page!

 

 and when i go to the blog page, that shows the home page?! really confusing.

 

any help is appreciated. thanks

You post loop displays the Page Content. 

 

As you have set your Blog page to be the page called 'Blog' - adding the post loop to the blog page will show the blog posts on the blog page. 

 

if you want the home page to show the blog posts and not blog page then go to Wordpress > Reading  and set the home page to show the blog posts.
