    How do I move a post to a different page?

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

    There is no automatic way to move post content to a page. It’s a copy and paste job.

    There is only one page in a blog that will disply all posts. 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 called for example “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”.

    Front page displays
    __ Your latest posts

    A static page (select below)
    Front page:
    Posts page:

    No, I don’t want a static front page. I want to move a couple of ‘sticky’ posts from my Home page to my About page. No way to do this other than copy/paste and then delete the original?

    You could un-sticky the post, then add a link to it on your homepage. Perhaps choose a picture from your library (from the post) with the link to the original.

    If you delete a post which has been indexed by search engines, then your readers will see a 404 not found error rather than the post.

    OK, I unstickied one, and added a link to it from my About page.

    Thanks. /CL
