Fictive CSS Latest Posts v Static Front Page

  1. Hi
    I'm trying out Fictive and want latest blog posts as my home page, rather than the static front page I set up long ago.

    I have selected this option in customize and indeed when you land on my site it is the blog posts you see. But I still have a HOME page in the menu bar, which takes you to the old static page. I would like to remove that page, rename the blog post landing page to HOME, and have it on the menu bar. At the moment, what was the BLOG page shows no posts at all.

    Any ideas gratefully received!

    The blog I need help with is isabelashdown.com.

  2. Hi!

    It does appear that your theme supports custom menus: http://theme.wordpress.com/themes/fictive/

    Under "Appearance" there should be a button for Menu and you should be able to make the changes there.

  3. Thanks mindybowman, yes I am using a custom menu - but what I can't figure out is how to get my blog posts to reappear on the blog page (which I plan to rename HOME). They seem to have disappeared since I transferred onto this theme today ... Until I get that fixed, I don't want to fiddle with the custom menu!

  4. Since your home page is already showing your blog posts you're halfway there. :)

    1. Go to your custom menu and remove the current home page button.
    2. You then want to select the "link" option, put the URL of your site http://isabelashdown.com/ in the appropriate box and then title it HOME.
    3. Select "Add to Menu" and then move it to the position you want in your custom menu.
    4. Make sure you hit "Save Menu" to make the changes.

    At this point you should be able to delete the blog tab since your posts are now showing up on your home page.

    The page you currently have showing as HOME can be renamed (make sure you change the permalink name as well to match the new name) and added to the menu if you like.

  5. You're a star - thanks so much! It all seems so easy when you know how ... Thanks again, Isabel :)

  6. You are most welcome! :)
