Jessica – Configuring the Blog Page

Go to Pages

  • Add a new page into WordPress and label it Blog
  • Set the Template to Blog. Note: due to changes in Genesis 3.0, there is no longer a Blog template. As a result, there may not even be a “Template” drop-down in the “Page Attributes” section.  If there is a dropdown, leave it set to “Default.”
  • Save your new page

Go to Settings -> Reading

  • Go to Settings, then Reading
  • In the “Your Homepage Displays” section, choose “A Static Page.”
  • Set “Posts Page” to the Page you created above.
  • Save Changes.

Go to Genesis -> Theme Settings
