How to Change Where Your Posts Get Published

Your posts will always publish on your blog page. However, you can designate which page is your blog page.

  1. Log into your WordPress Dashboard.
  2. Go to Settings.
  3. Select the Reading option.
  4. Modify or confirm what is being displayed on your front page.
    • Your Latest Posts: This is the default setting. Your home page displays your blog posts.
    • A Static Page: This will swap out your home (blog) page for a static page and instead display blog posts on the static page.

      Important: Do not have your 'home page' and 'posts page' be the same page as required by WordPress.

  5. Click Save Changes.
    Click Save Changes
