Posts not showing on blog page
I am new to your template. Sorry for the simple question. I went to reading and set the front page as static. for posts I created a ‘blog’ page and picked that for posts. I have written three posts and none of them show up on this page. What am I missing?

Hi jjh, and welcome to the forum!
Give this page a quick read… and let me know if it doesn’t help you.
Hi Josh: appeciate the directions but it doesn’t help me. I did all the page suggested. My home page I setup as static and named it. Then I created another page called blog and saved it and put it next to Posts Page. But my posts will not show up on that page. It probably has to do with the permalinks that direct the posts to the blog page????? The posts show up in the slider as directed and also on the blog posting on the sidebar of the front page, but alas, no blogs on the blog page I set up. Have any other suggestions. Thank you so much for your help.

Hmmm… have you done anything with your .htaccess file?
Perhaps try to change your permalinks to something different… click save… switch them back… and save again.
By the way, when I click on ‘blog’ it says
Index of /blog
Apache Server at http://www.xxxxxxxx.com Port 80
All righty, I go to settings, and then permalinks. Another ‘don’t know what I am doing’ question. How do I change a permalink on that page? I printed out Codex Using Permalinks from wordpress and well, that was confusing.
thanx for your help.

Just “tick” one of the other options and save… like “date and title”… although I’m not sure if that’s actually an option 🙂
And then click it back to what you had and save again.
I hate to say it but nothing changed. Ya know, I clicked on a post that was in the slider and it took me to the ‘Blog’ page where the post recides. But if I click on Blob page first, it won’t go there, it just gives me what I wrote above. I am a little frustrated and don’t know what to do. I can start over by reloading your template (of course I would copy what I wanted to save) and see what happens. Should I try that?ModAdmin
I fixed it by reloading the template and changing the name of ‘blog’ to MyBlog (don’t know or care why it works with a different name, just that it works ;0). Also, when I reloaded, it put the page ‘home’ back in. I can live with that. I just need to reformat around the home page. I really appreicate your support. You guys have been great and I want to thank Josh and you both for helping. Thank you again.
