How To Get WordPress Posts To Page – Displaying Posts On A Page | WP Learning Lab

This is one of those things that all beginners want to be able to do and it seems like it should be easy. Luckily, it actually is easy to do if you know how to do it 🙂

There are two ways to make this happen. One is to set the blog page and the other is to add categories to the navigation menus which displays all the posts in the category.

Let’s do the first one first, setting the blog page to display posts on a specific page. First, you have to make sure that you create a page called Blog by going to Page then Add New.

Type Blog into the title field and click on Publish.

Now go to Settings then Reading Settings in the WordPress Admin area. At the top you will see a “Front page displays” section where you choose the “static page” option. Then for the Post Page drop down choose the Blog page you just created.

You will also have to choose a Front Page to make this work.

Then click Save Changes at the bottom of the page.

Now your posts will appear on the “Blog” page you created a few earlier.

Another easy option is to display posts on a category page. On all of the posts you create you have the option of setting a Category for the post.

You can then go to Appearance, then Menus and add that specific category to any navigation menu you have on your site.

When someone clicks on the category link in the nav they will be taken to that category page where it displays all the posts in that category.

  1. I'm just now learning to use WP coming over from Joomla. In Joomla they make it easy to add images for your categories and even have an index of categories with images displayed for each. I'm trying to do the same on WP. Is it an easy way to do this without changing code? They used to have plugins for this but they are all expired or cost.

  2. Very short video but contains all the required result. Thanks alot. Please, how do I set the image to appear at once when someone clicks on the blog page?

  3. So, question: I want the front home page to be the blog set up just like you have your warm countries. That's fine. That's simple. However, I want to categorize the blogs and use the catagories as navs just like you did. However, I would like to have a SIDEBAR show up on those "pages" (which I know aren't pages they are categories) … Is that possible? Blog posts that are defined as categories; The categories are navigation (menu items). But when you go to that menu item, the page that shows up has three columns with one being a sidebar vs just three columns across of blog posts. Is that possible thru using a theme?

  4. THANK YOU FOR SHOWING HOW TO DO THE CATEGORIES THING!!! I've been trying so hard to figure this out!!! You are amazing!

  5. Thank you so much for this tutorial! I have been trying to figure out how to post items in different categories and I watched this video just before punching a hole in the wall. So freaking helpful!

  6. Why when I add the static page does it take everything from my home page and put it on my blog page. When I do this, it makes my home page blank.

  7. I have been struggling for HOURS on this by myself, you're the only tutorial I found that 'clicked' for me. I've already hit Subscribe – thank you so much!

  8. OMG! I have been trying to figure this out for ever! I just decided to keep them all in blog. Now I can have it the way I want it 🙂 Thank you!

  9. Thanks a lot… very helpful indeed. Would it be possible to have a general block of text/images above the different post from categories? That would be awesome 🙂
