    You have made your home page a static front page but have not set a “posts” page.

    1. Click Pages -> Add New in your Dashboard.
    2. Title this page “Home” (you can, of course, name it whatever you like).
    3. Type the content you want displayed on the front page of your blog and publish it.
    4. Write another new page.
    5. Title this page “Posts” (Or “blog” if you want
    6. You don’t need to type content, because it won’t be displayed. Publish the page.
    7. You will see the following options. Set yours to look like this:

    8. Click Settings -> Reading on the left menu in your Dashboard.



    What do you mean by “tab for posts”? In fact there is only one page that we can post to in any blog and we cannot prevent any posts we publish from appearing on that one page. By default it’s the front page of the blog that all posts appear on.

    Though there is only one dynamic page in a blog for posts and we cannot post to more than that one page, we can create the appearance that we have posted to more than one page. We organize posts by assigning Categories to them and when we publish the software automatically displays the posts on dynamic Categories pages. is a static page that you created. It will never update with posts because it is not a dynamic Categories page.

    Delete that static page. You need to create a Category and assign it to your posts. When you do that each time you publish a post with that Category assigned to it the post will display on the dynamic Category page that you have included in your custom menu.
