Static home page versus posts page

    Do you have to label the posts page, 'home' in order for them to show up? What about naming an entry page?

    The blog I need help with is belladonichaze.me.

  2. No you can name the page you create for Posts anything you want to call it. The front page of the blog by default will display your posts (not pages) http://en.support.wordpress.com/post-vs-page/ in reverse chronological order, with the most recently published post on top.

    If you do not want the posts to show on the front page, then you can create two pages ie. a static front page example “Welcome” for your site and a “Blog” page for posts.

    After you do that you go to > Settings > Reading and make the designation change and click “save changes”.
    http://en.support.wordpress.com/pages/front-page/

    Front page displays
    _Your latest posts
    _A static page (select below)
    Front page:
    Posts page:
