Creating a Blog

To create a Blog list you need to have single blog posts. Those can be grouped by categories and then presented that way in a overview page (a blog list).

Use WordPress “Posts” to create your blog posts.

  • A Post has a format option. Depending on which post format is chosen more settings become available which need to be set. The options each have help support textfields explaining what extra setting needs to be supplied. The chosen post format determines how the post should behave at the front of your website.
