    Is there a feature where, after the Xth post, a new page is automatically added? (Bueno)

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

    Posts and Pages are not the same. Create a post. Create a page. Please provide a link to the blog in question and more deatils so we know exactly what you mean.

    No example. Just the question.

    I have a Page with Posts on it.
    I think that this Page will contain Post after Post after Post (etc.) until I manually Add a new page.
    Subsequent Posts are then posted on the new page.
    Am I right so far? Wouldn’t surprise me if I’m not.

    I’m wondering if there’s a way to select:
    “After X-number of posts (blog owner selects what number “X” is), subsequent Posts will be posted on a new Page Y.” (which will be automatically created to hold Post X + 1, and subsequent Posts.)

    Just wondering if such a feature exists, but I’m guessing it doesn’t.

    HELP! HELP! HELP!

    I started a second BLOG yesterday.

    Now I notice that the authorship of all the Posts on my MAIN BLOG — http://revsraine.wordpress.com — has been changed to the new second BLOG.

    No clue.

    Very tired.

    OK. Figured out how to fix the authorship issue.
    NO clue why it happened.
    Went to (new blog name).wordpress.com/wp-admin
    thinking it was a unique location ONLY for the new/2nd blog.
    Apparently not.

    How to manage an additional blog without mixing with another blog?

    Sorry for changing topics.

    When we register a username account the email address we provided becomes our unique identifier. When we are logged in under that username all the blogs we register are registered to that username and that email address.

    To completely disassociate two blogs currently registered to the same username we register another username with a different email address, while we are logged out of WordPress.com. Then we add the new username as an Admin to the blog we want to transfer to that username, and use this process to transfer the blog to a new username account.

    I think that maybe you have page and the main body of your blog mixed up.

    Pages are those things that go along the bar at the top of your blog page, things like ‘home’, ‘about’ etc. You can create them and people click on them to go to some other part of your blog.

    New pages on the main body of your blog are something that happen when you reach a certain amount of posts. They aren’t really on another page, it is just the way the blog theme is set up to show posts.

    Some themes show (for example) 10 posts then at the bottom you have to click on ‘previous entries’ to get to any earlier posts.Other themes have infinite scrolling which means that when you scroll down new posts will keep coming at the bottom of the screen with no need to click anywhere to go backwards in your history.

    I hope this helps explain it. :)

    @metan1
    Thanks.

    @revsraine
    Pages are static and are for content that rarely changes. They sit outside of the blog structure and you cannot post to multiple pages in any blog. There is only one main page for posts in a blog and all posts will display on the main blog page. There is no way to exclude posts from the main posts (blog) page.

    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 Choice 1 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”.
