    Hey GP gang it’s me again.

    I wonder if there is any specific way to create a page as usual, but have it reflect on the blog index page as a result?

    I want to do this because I want to design some custom formats in the blog post that the standard post comes without.

    So meaning:

    1. I create and publish a page as usual

    2. The page is reflected like a blog post on the blog index page.

    Thank you so much!

    Hey Sam,

    So you want a page to display as a post on the posts page? Only one specific page, or all pages?

    Hey Tom, thanks for fast response.

    I would like specific pages to show up on the posts page.

    This is because I would like to style some pages that I just find it a hassle to do as a post.

    So for example:

    1. Posts are on mysite.com/blog
    2. Say I would like mysite.com/page-1 to be on mysite.com/blog, I can choose to do so, and it will display as a blog post (with all the meta info etc) on mysite.com/blog.

    Hope that makes sense.

    Thank you!

    I’ve been looking around and I’m not sure if it’s possible.

    It may be worth asking on https://wordpress.stackexchange.com/.

    Hi Tom, just reporting back – decided to just create posts and custom style them from there. Does this sound like a post template to you?

    I’m getting confused with all the terminology and differences between post types and post templates.

    Post types are things like “posts”, “pages”, “recipes” etc.. Technically they’re all the same thing, but they’re used differently.

    Not too sure what you mean by post template? All post types (except for pages) will use the same template.

    Basically, I want to use a Blog Post that I can use to customise in a few ways:

    Full page width with certain styles, while others have a sidebar.

    In that case, I don’t need to change anything right now, right Tom?

    By right, I can just style in the CSS Editor the styles I want, right? ๐Ÿ™‚

    I don’t see why not ๐Ÿ™‚

    You can also use our Elements module to adjust sidebar layouts, full width etc.. for specific post types.
