Can find new posts

  1. I am creating posts from the add new post tab, but they are not showing up on my blog. When I try to view the blog it sends me to the home page, but it is a static page I created, not the blog page. I never edited the blog page so I don't know what is happening. On my other website/blog when I add a new post it goes to the blog page. Any suggestions?

    The blog I need help with is djkarmastl.com.

  2. Posts and Pages are different and it's important to understand what those differences are. Pages are static and are for content that rarely changes. They sit outside of the blog structure and you cannot post to multiple pages in any blog. Pages lack Google juice but posts have tonnes of Google juice. There is only one main page for posts in a blog and all posts will display on the main blog page. There is no way to exclude posts from the main posts (blog) page.

    The front page of the blog by default will display your posts (not pages) in reverse chronological order, with the most recently published post on top. If you do not want all the posts to show on the front page, then you can create a static front page "Welcome" for your site and a “Blog” page for posts.

    Choice 1 static front page
    Choice 2 running page for all posts on front page

    Which do you choose? It’s one or the other.

    If you choose Choice 1 static front page then you have to create two pages as I said above. After you do that you go to > Settings > Reading and make the designation change and click “save changes”.

    Please go to this page > Settings > Reading and confirm the selections you made there.

  3. Please also check th visibilty on the posts themselves. Posts » Post Visibility

    Posts
    Public – The post will be visible to everyone.
    Stick this post to the front page - The post will be “stuck” to the top of the blog’s front page. More info about Sticky Posts.
    Protected – The post is protected with a password you set. Any user that has the password can view a protected post.
    Private – Posts are only visible to blog Editors and Administrators. Private posts are not visible in Blog Surfer, feeds, or in any search. A post can be private without being password protected.
