There are three blog methods you can use to display blog posts. The first blog method we will cover is the standard WordPress method which is setting up an assigned blog or post page. It’s as simple as making a new page, and then telling WordPress to use that page as the post page. Before you can display blog posts, you must first create them.
How To Assign A Post Page
Step 1 – Create a new page by navigating to the ‘Pages’ tab in your WordPress admin sidebar. Once here, click the ‘Add New’ button at the top of the page.
Step 2 – Input a new name for your page, then find the ‘Page Attributes’ box on right side. Under the Template section, select the ‘Default Template’ option from the dropdown list.
Step 3 – You can choose to customize the page using options located under the Fusion Page Options box below the editor. When you’re done, click ‘Publish’ to save the page.
Step 4 – To set a page as your main blog page, navigate to Settings > Reading and find the ‘Posts Page’ option, then select the page from the dropdown list. Doing this will automatically pull your blog posts and place them on the assigned page.
Fusion Theme Options For The Assigned Blog Page
When using the assigned blog page as described above, all the options you can select for it are located in Theme Options > Blog tab. There are dozens of options to choose from like layout, sidebars, excerpts, full width, etc. There are general blog options, single post page options and blog meta options. Each one has titles and descriptions to help you better understand what they do. Any type of blog options you need to set will be set in Fusion Theme Options when using the assigned blog page.
