Is it possible to designate another second page as my blogging page? (with all the functionality that I used to have when my homepage was my blog page) Thanks Blog url: http://adigitalcontrarian.wordpress.com/ The blog I need help with is adigitalcontrarian.com.

Don’t add anything else to the page, it’s just a placeholder. Next, go into Settings > Reading – and four lines from the top next to Posts page: – select Blog from the drop-down list. Scroll down and click the blue “Save Changes” button. That should be it. Let me know how it goes. July 9, 2012 at 8:34 pm #940668 adigitalcontrarianMember Excellent – sorted thanks! Although you didn’t specify saving the second page before designating it as the ‘posts’ page – no matter I got it right 2nd go!
