    You want,

    #1) Single Category Page
    #2) Single Blog Page,

    well, that's default WordPress mechanism, WordPress supports blog listing that way by default. I wonder, you have any posts ?

    And your question sound's like you want to show posts on its main page which is

    if this is your requirement then you can set Reading settings ( Settings > Reading ) to "Your Latest Posts", and just beneath it, there is setting for default pagination. Take a look at this screenshot please.

    Hey there Carl,
    I want a main category page with all of the blogs on it (10 per page)

    I managed to enable you the blog page in the formentioned URL. I only needed the Upfront editor for that, so let me show you the steps I followed:

    1. change page template into "Blog page template"

    2. edit the blog region by clicking the appropriate cog button (I only set the limit to 10 posts)

    Please take notice about other taxonomies pages, like the blog categories you mentioned: if you edit (always with Upfront) a category page, you should be able to edit the same options as in the main blog page, by clicking the cog button of the appropriate element. Upon saving a taxonomy page though, you'll be promted if you wish to keep these changes for the same type (e.g. category) or not. :wink:

    Hope that helps, feel free to post back here if more help is required.

    Warm regards,

Thank NAME, for their help.
