    Hello,
    Thank you for reading this.
    I created an index page on my blog site. When I go to “Static Front Page” setting, both “Front Page” and “Post Page” are only showing “Home” as a selection. Am I supposed to set both to “Home”? Or did I do something wrong?

    When I made this “Home” Page, instead of creating a new page, I edited “About” that was already there to “Home”.
    Was I supposed to not do this?
    I would appreciate your help. Thank you!

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

    Hi chikalish,

    It’s not wrong, but setting both the Front page and Posts page to the same location is not typically done. Setting a static page as your Front page gives your landing page a different look and feel than if you just displayed your latest posts.

    You might just want create a new page for blog posts and then set your Posts page to that location.

    I would then add a menu item to your menu that points to this new blog page.

    Hi daschultmn,

    Thank you so much for your post.!
    I created a new page called “Blog” and published.
    But the only difference I see on the home page is it added the blue “blog” bar on top of the “home” bar. Is this what is supposed to be?

    If possible, could you take a look at my site and let me know? Thank you. (again, I’m sorry I’m a pretty much beginner at this)

    Great job! It looks fine to me. You may want to list ‘home’ before ‘blog’, but that’s ultimately up to you.

    I indeed wanted to change the order but I didn’t know how, I just figured it out.
    You’ve been very helpful!
