I have managed to show post pages on my side bar but I can not for the life of me figure out how to show the blog page.

 

http://www.chalet-giffre-samoens.com/summer

 

Goes for all the pages except the home page I did not want to show it.

Hello Tina 

 

please could you clarify what you mean? The link to Blog in your side bar goes to http://www.chalet-giffre-samoens.com/information/reviews

 is this the page you wanted show in the menu? 


The answer to many issues can be found by searching in the forum before posting as someone else  may very well have had the same problem before you have.  Also, reading the documentation can help you gain a good understanding of how everything works.

Well not sure just wanted blog to show some where.

 

I have created a blog page which I showed in settings -> reading -> Posts page: 

But I am still lost.

 

I am happy with the reviews showing where I have asked them to like a guest book.

 

I have put a callout in the footer but I dont know how to get the blog to show in there.

 

:(

Hello tina 

 

Please see the documentation relating to Template setup http://support.pagelines.me/docs/drag-drop/template-setup/

 

And a more specific topic - setting up your blog http://support.pagelines.me/docs/site-options/blog-posts/

Hi Again,

 

Ok read the blog and post setting I had already been through that and I understand it BUT

 

I don't understand HOW to get the blog to show on my site.

 

I may sound thick but its the only thing I cant seem to get to appear :(

 

I have created a blog page because I couldn't see where else information would come from but that hasn't worked.

 

If I go back to a wordpress's themes I can do it but not with pagelines theme which is what I would rather use.

 

Please help...

Hi there

 

Once you've created a blog page go to settings>reading from the wp admin area. You'll see an option to select a static home page and a posts page from the two dropdown menus.

 

Select your blog page in the posts page dropdown, this will assign the blog to the selected page and override it to use the blog template.


Kindly search the forum and read the documentation before posting. It will help you resolve many issues.

For CSS help be sure to check out W3Schools first and be sure to download FireBug for FireFox for troubleshooting.
