Move articles from static page to article page

  1. Hi,
    currently my articles are directed to a static page and another page is the start page.
    No I've chenged my mind and I want my articles beeing displayd first, ie. as the start page.
    BUT - if I confige the static article page to be the start page, too, a warning is displayed ("shouldn't be the same") and it does nt work - the article page is not displayed at all - neither at start nor directly via menu.
    If I change it back to display another page as start, the articles are there again as content of the static article page.

    Question:
    How can I move my current articles to the non-static "current articles" start page?

    Thanks,
    Jo

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

  2. Your posts (articles) are on this page http://jofischer.wordpress.com/logbuch/ and is accessible by clicking on the link in the horizontal menu. That posts on that page are also displayed in in the RSS feed > http://jofischer.wordpress.com/feed/
    Your front page is http://jofischer.wordpress.com/ and is titled "About".

  3. Thanks, timethief.
    You described the current situation correctly.
    But - I want to change that! I want to have the articles on my front page. The problem is (as I tried to describe above), that when I configure the articles page "logbuch" to be displayed as frontpage, a warning shows up on my dashboard and it DOES NOT WORK. Thats why I changed it back in the current mode.
    I tried to set the front page to "your articles page" - but then this front page is empty!!
    I hope that I was able to describe my problem more precise than in my original post.
    Regards,
    Jo

  4. Settings > Reading > "Front Page displays": click "Your latest posts", click Save Changes.

  5. That'll do it. :)

  6. Now it works exactly as I wanted it - thanks to all!
    My problem was, that I was confused by the fact, that my pevious "logbuch" page was empty as soon as I configured the front page to "latest posts". But in fact my posts are not lost but are displayed no on the home page. I removed the old "logbuch" page and now I like it :-))
    Best regards,
    Jo

  7. You're welcome.

    Yes, that's it: when you set static page A as your front and static page B as your posts page, then B becomes a link to your latest posts. When you set your front to display your latest posts, page B reverts to being a simple static page.
