I just imported a bunch of posts from blogger to my site http://www.transientme.com and they show up when I use the basic Genesis theme.
However, when I load the Amped theme, they disappear.
Can anybody help?
The reason for that is because Amped uses custom home.php file. To set up the homepage, you can do so from the widget page.
Since you only want to use the default blog page, follow these steps:
1. Create a new page. Simply give any title.
2. Then, on the right column, somewhere below the publish button, you'll see Template. Choose "Blog" template from the dropdown.
3. Settings > Reading. Tick on the Static Page bullet, and from the "Front Page: " dropdown, choose the page you just created.
@pwtucker - wpspeak's approach is good if you want a blog style home page, like the sample Genesis theme. But if you want the widgetized home page of the Amped theme, I think you'd be better off by downloading/activating Nick's Genesis Featured Widget Amplified plugin, putting the widget in the Featured Bottom widget area, and configuring it. That will give you blog posts in that widget area, while preserving the widgetized home page of the Amped theme. Pick the solution that fits your needs.
Awesome, thanks this really helped out. I followed wpspeak instructions and have a blog front page like I was wanting. I kept putting stuff in the page instead of leaving it blank and couldn't figure it out.
