How to Change Which Page Your Posts Publish To

Your posts will always publish onto your blog page. However, you can designate which page is your blog page.

  1. Log into your WordPress Dashboard.
  2. Go to Settings.
  3. Go to Reading.
  4. Modify or confirm what is being displayed as your front page.
    • Your Latest Posts: This is the default setting. Your home page displays your blog posts.
    • A Static Page: This will swap out your home (blog) page for a static page, and instead display blog posts on the static page.
      Important: Do not have your 'home page' and 'posts page' be the same page as required by WordPress.
  5. Click Save Changes.
