    Hi! I would like to have 2 blogs on my website. Is that possible? I Cant find where to add the second one. I would like one to be my easy updated “news” page and the other to be the actual blog!

    Thank you

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

    That’s not possible. There is only one page for posts in any blog and you cannot embed a second blog into the first one.



    There is only one page that we can post to in any blog and we cannot prevent any posts we publish from appearing on that one page. By default it’s the front page of the blog that all posts appear on.

    Though there is only one dynamic page in a blog for posts and we cannot post to more than that one page, we can create the appearance that we have posted to more than one page.

    We organize posts by assigning Categories to them and when we publish the software automatically displays the posts on dynamic Categories pages. You need to create a “News” Category and assign it to your posts. Then you need to create a cusom menu and include the Category page in it. When you do that each time you publish a post with that Category assigned to it the post will display on the dynamic News Category page.

    Here’s a link to a custom menu walk-through > http://onecoolsitebloggingtips.com/2011/08/11/wordpress-com-custom-menu-walk-through/

    There are many common errors, misunderstanding and misconceptions when creating custom menus and you can read about them here > http://wpbtips.wordpress.com/2011/12/19/custom-menus/

    The front page of the blog by default will display your posts (not pages) in reverse chronological order, with the most recently published post on top. If you do not want all the posts to show on the front page, then you can create a static front page “Welcome” for your site and a “Blog” page for posts.
    Choice 1 static front page
    Choice 2 running page for all posts on front page
    Which do you choose? It’s one or the other.
    If you choose a static front page then you have to create two pages as I said above. After you do that you go to > Settings > Reading and make the designation change and click “save changes”.


    So when I use it as a website I can’t have 2 blogs on my website..? Isn’t there a way to make it possible..? Like an add to pay for or something. Or do WordPress use a different service for websites that I could use?



    There is no upgrade that you can purchase that will change the fact that there is only one page you can post to on any blog. See > Using WordPress.com to Create a Website http://en.support.wordpress.com/using-wordpress-to-create-a-website/
