Where's the blog page?

Hi there,

I have a quick question. I’m working on a site using Product Theme and can’t seem to get the posts page up and running.

I’ve gone to Settings/Reading and selected a page called “Blog” for the “posts page” but when I click on that page, I get the front page again.

Here is the link:

The front page:

The blog page (where the blog posts should be):

I’m sure I’m missing something obvious….

Thanks for your help!

    Hi Laurie,

    I’m testing a couple things out with this one currently. Could you let us know what version of WordPress and the Product theme you’re using currently?

    Also, is this a multisite by any chance? It might just be that the /blog/ slug is taken by multisite, no sure.

    Could you try changing the name of the page or slug to something like /blog1/ ?

    Hi David,

    I’m using WP 3.2.1 and Product 3.1.1

    This is not a multisite, but just in case I tried creating a new page called News and reset the settings.

    When I did this, the News page shows a graphic that I had called news, but no posts and no front page.

    I tried renaming Blog to Blog1, but got the front page again.

    Also, in settings, I don’t have a “Home” option in the dropdown list of pages that I can assign static front or post page setting to….

    Thanks for your help!

    When using a static front-page, you’d have to utilize a blog template, which all the themes available here should have included.

    So for your News page, as that appears to be working thus far, if you select the “blog-news” template when editing that page, that should show the posts on that page.

    Could you give that a try?
