    On the homepage where I show teaser posts, there’s no link at the bottom for readers to click on to go to older posts. How can I add that in? And on the 2nd page for example, there will then be links for “older posts” and “newer posts”, how can I do these?

    Can you share a link to your site so we can take a look? Also, which theme are you using?

    Hi,

    Here’s a possible way, but it very much depends on how your theme is set up.  You can make a Page called Home, choose the “Blog” template in the template dropdown, and save.

    Then you set your site to use that Page as Home.  (Settings…. Reading…)  That makes the homepage very bloggy.   :-)  You will probably need to update your main menu, too, and possibly others.

    Keep in mind that this may remove the cool teaser Post scenario you have.  Many themes have a super fancy homepage template built in, and if so, my plan would not work without additional changes or custom programming.

    My site is http://www.quantummarketer.com, and I am using the Lifestyle theme.

    I don’t have Lifestyle, so I can’t offer any specifics beyond my suggestions above.  But it is pretty clearly a custom loop on home, so probably a programmer needed to get what you want, which is further customization as opposed to a small tweak, unless the theme has unusually fancy admin settings for the Homepage.
