Adding a Blog page

If your site doesn’t already have a Blog you can add one. It’s as simple as adding a new page and setting it’s template type as “Blog”. This page doesn’t have any content of its own – it pulls content through from each new post that you write.

Step 1

Begin by simply adding a new page called Blog. Actually, you can call it anything you like, but Blog is fairly standard.

That’s it – you now have a Blog. Every new post that you write will have its headline and first paragraph listed on the Blog page. People can then click this headline to go through and read the full story.

However, at this point your Blog page won’t be showing up on your navigation bar. You need to add it manually by following this tutorial:
