    I’m not sure what I’m doing wrong. Why are blog post not showing up? I’ve written a few test posts and figured they should be listed on

    http://gfa.carolyncreates.com/blog

    But the page doesn’t exist. However you can see I have “posts”.

    Example: http://gfa.carolyncreates.com/nature-based-adventure/

    What am I doing wrong?

    Thanks,
    Carolyn

    Hi Carolyn,

    If you are using a different front page other than blog posts, you will need to create a page in the dashboard for your blog to display.

    Also the page will need the template of blog.

    Hope this helps

    I don’t understand Stewart. The last time I used the Crystal theme, I just began to blog and it worked fine. Could you elaborate?

    Thanks,
    Carolyn

    You need to make sure that you’ve actually created a page using the blog template. It doesn’t have to be called “Blog” (although most people do use that page name). Any page can become a blog page, as long as you use the blog template (rather than the default template, or archive template).

    No problem, Carolyn! Sometimes I miss the most obvious things myself :)

    Closing this thread as “resolved”.
