Moving older homepage posts into a page

  1. I want to move my older homepage posts into a page. There does not seem to be a way to do that. What am I missing?

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

  2. We don't move Posts to Pages. The two are completely different.

    Staff have been introducing “infinite scroll" to themes — a site wide change that will be applied to all themes that are suitable for the implementation. http://en.forums.wordpress.com/topic/to-infinity?replies=137

    Disabling the infinite scroll feature to get rid of the pop-up in the footer results in a "Load More Posts" tab, and you can't disable that "Load More Posts" tab from appearing and have "previous post" and "next post" links, without the Custom Design upgrade. http://en.support.wordpress.com/custom-design/

  3. Thanks, @timethief. I have a lot of outdated stuff on my homepage, and I would rather not delete them. I'd like to put them into pages by catagory, so they are available without scrolling the whole way down, which I don't think the average blog reader is likely to do.

    Are you talking about the outdated pages in your top navigation menu?

    If so, then make a custom menu titled something like "old issues" and put those pages as child pages of that. They will still be visible but won't clutter up your top navigation.

    In fact, IMO, if I were you, I'd make a custom menu with current issues for the top navigation. Then make another custom menu for "old issues" to be shown in your sidebar as a menu widget.

    and this: http://wpbtips.wordpress.com/2011/12/19/custom-menus/
    and finally:

    A key thing to understand about wp.com is that pages and posts are different. Read timethief's link before you proceed!
