Move articles from static page to article page
currently my articles are directed to a static page and another page is the start page.
No I’ve chenged my mind and I want my articles beeing displayd first, ie. as the start page.
BUT – if I confige the static article page to be the start page, too, a warning is displayed (“shouldn’t be the same”) and it does nt work – the article page is not displayed at all – neither at start nor directly via menu.
If I change it back to display another page as start, the articles are there again as content of the static article page.
How can I move my current articles to the non-static “current articles” start page?
The blog I need help with is jofischer.wordpress.com.
Your posts (articles) are on this page http://jofischer.wordpress.com/logbuch/ and is accessible by clicking on the link in the horizontal menu. That posts on that page are also displayed in in the RSS feed > http://jofischer.wordpress.com/feed/
Your front page is http://jofischer.wordpress.com/ and is titled “About”.
You described the current situation correctly.
But – I want to change that! I want to have the articles on my front page. The problem is (as I tried to describe above), that when I configure the articles page “logbuch” to be displayed as frontpage, a warning shows up on my dashboard and it DOES NOT WORK. Thats why I changed it back in the current mode.
I tried to set the front page to “your articles page” – but then this front page is empty!!
I hope that I was able to describe my problem more precise than in my original post.
Settings > Reading > “Front Page displays”: click “Your latest posts”, click Save Changes.
That’ll do it. :)
Now it works exactly as I wanted it – thanks to all!
My problem was, that I was confused by the fact, that my pevious “logbuch” page was empty as soon as I configured the front page to “latest posts”. But in fact my posts are not lost but are displayed no on the home page. I removed the old “logbuch” page and now I like it :-))
Yes, that’s it: when you set static page A as your front and static page B as your posts page, then B becomes a link to your latest posts. When you set your front to display your latest posts, page B reverts to being a simple static page.
