Have you wanted to create a Separate page for blog posts in WordPress?

To do this you need to create two new WordPress pages.

For both pages go to the right hand side to see Page Attributes, from here you can select a template for either a home page or a blog page.

After choosing a template, in the top right corner check the discussion box then go below the post edit area and uncheck both comment and trackbacks.

Next go to Settings, Reading and under the Front page displays choose a static page then choose the page to be used as the front page and the page for your blog posts.

  1. I m using Xtheme and I m doing pretty well, but I was just lost with that simple idea of showing a blog page ! ( as I always never to show a blog page on sites I m working on ) so in this case I was lost 🙂 thanks to you , I did it in 3 clics !!! thank uuuuuuuu 🙂

  2. Im using onepage wordpress template for my website, when i change reading setting to what you static page, first one to home, second to Blog like you mentioned in the video, all the pages changes (Home, Portfolio, Services..etc) All these pages shows the same content which its my portfolio) because i have each category on a different page). And not only that, it shows the featured picture+the whole post, so you dont need to click on the post to see everything, its kinda confusing, do you have any idea about that?

  3. Didn’t work. There is no content being displayed. I have 5 posts. If I use a post plugin in the sidebar, that shows the content.
    Would using SiteOrigin page builder prevent the content from being added to a page?

  4. I have mine set up for a static page with a blog page for blog entries, however, I am getting this error when I click on the Blog tab:

    Index of /blog
    Parent Directory
    Apache Server at Port 80″

    The blue text is a link to the site home static page.

    Why is this happening and what can I do to fix this?

  5. If I want a Blog page to show the blogs directly on homepage, but no static Home page ( I don’t have one and I don’t want one) , how can I do it? I can set “Blog” as a Home page, but what should I set as Posts Page? I am asking this because a page can be modified a lot more in Visual Composer than if “Your Latest Posts” are set as homepage. I hope you understand what I want.
