How do I show all my posts when click 'Blog' to the Custom Menu

    Hi Everyone:

    I know that Blog Categories and Blog Archives show in the sidebar.

    However, I want all my blog posts to show when I click a menu item called 'Blog'. I do not want my blog on my home page.

    I checked the Menus section and only see the option to add one or more categories. How do I add all posts categories as one menu item to the custom menu?

    I am trying to simulate the Blog menu that I see on self-hosted WordPress sites.

    Thanks

    The blog I need help with is tamarawilliamsvaservices.wordpress.com.

  2. What you'll want to do is set up a static front page and then create a link to your "posts" page in your menu. Here is the support page for setting up your front page:

    http://en.support.wordpress.com/pages/front-page/

    Take a look through that page and let me know if you have any further questions. I'll be happy to help.

    Thanks rootjosh but I do not want it for my front page. I was hoping to have it show when I click a menu item.

    I guess I will just have to use the sidebars although I was hoping for a more professional look.

  4. A static front page would be a webpage that did not have blog posts on it. You would then designate another page to be the page that had your blog posts. For example, it could be http://tamarawilliamsvaservices.wordpress.com/blog

    Then you could place a link labeled "blog" in your navigation menu that pointed to http://tamarawilliamsvaservices.wordpress.com/.

    Does that make sense?

    I misunderstood what you meant. It works! Thank you very much.
