Next you need to create another page for your blog posts. You can title this page as Blog. A lot of WordPress themes come with different templates, and it is possible that your theme may have a template to be used for blog page. However, if there is no template available in your theme, then you can simply choose default. Don’t forget to disable the comments and trackbacks option on this page as well.
What we have done here is created two pages which we will use to display a custom homepage and a page for blog posts. Now we need to get WordPress to use these pages accordingly. To do that go to Setttings » Reading and under the Front page displays option choose A static page. Below that choose the page to be used as the front page and the page for your blog posts.
Save your changes, and load your site to review changes. You may want to display the blog page in your navigation menus. To do that go to Appearance » Menus and add blog page to your menu.
We hope this article helped you create a custom page for blog posts in WordPress. For feedback and questions please leave us a comment or reach us on twitter @WPBeginner.
