How to change from category to blog

How do you change from category to blog?

Right now, my website goes like this… http://www.yoursite.comcategoryblog etc…

Is there a custom plugin that changes it?

Thanks,

Brad

    That’s a category URL. Not a blog.

    Anything within the Posts section is considered the Blog.

    To choose your own URL where the blog resides, go to Settings > Reading. Then for the “Front Page Displays” choose the second radio button, the static page. Choose a page for the Front Page and the posts page.

    The “Front Page” is where someone will end up if they go to http://www.yoursite.com

    The Posts Page is where the blog will reside. You can set a custom URL for that.

    I hope that makes sense.

    Hi Brian,

    That’s what I thought but for some reasons it didn’t work.

    I didn’t want the blog goes to the front page. I prefer to do the Posts Page. What I did is that I went to Pages to create a page to website.comblog. Then I did the settingsreading to have a static page set to Posts page and selected Blog.

    Then I saved changes.

    What happened here is:

    That Posts Page at website.comblog is not showing. Just a blank white page.

    And also I have a blog or post published as a test. But there was none on that page. Interesting, I have this breadcrumb looks like ….

    Home » Blog » » News » Welcome to the Official Website Blog!

    Home: I looked at each part. Home is not linked to the main website, it linked to the post itself.

    Blog: It shows http://www.website.com/blog

    [blank (between » » , strange eh?) Don’t ask me why is it there.

    News: it shows http://www.website.com/category/news

    Title: Welcome to the Official Website Blog!

    I am no WordPress expert and I am still learning here! your help is greatly appreciated!

    My goal is to have the listing of blogs reside at http://www.website.com/blog in the content page and the right sidebar shows archives and blog. Perhaps WordPress didn’t like me.

    Thanks,

    Brad
