How to create a separate page for blog posts on WordPress


Do you want to set up a separate page for blog posts on your WordPress site? WordPress will normally list your posts on the home page of your site, but not all sites want to include your posts on the first page your visitors would see. In this article, we will show you how to easily create a separate page for WordPress blog posts.

This video presented by WPForms, the most beginner-friendly WordPress forms plugin, take a look at their site here:



For our discount visit:

Start by making sure you have a page that you would like as your home page published on your site, as well as a page, usually empty, that would be replaced by a list of your most recent posts.

Next, you will have to go to Settings, Read and change the display settings from the home page to a Static page. For the home page, you would set the page you want to appear when someone goes directly to your URL. Set the posts page to where you want your blog posts to appear. Not all themes have the same settings, so if you don’t see this you would want to check on Appearance, Customize.

With the page changes set, you will want to add them to your menu as they are not automatically added to your menu. Under Appearance, Menus, you should see that the two pages you set up have text next to them, pointing out which is the posts page and which is the home page.

Depending on your theme, if you edit the page, there is a page template specifically for the home page that you can set by editing the page itself. Other topics you’d like to see in Appearance, Customize for custom settings. If none of these are options, we recommend that you take a look at Beaver Builder to customize the display of your site.
