This is the site I am building: http://78s.b5b.myftpupload.com/
Note how I placed the blog under the slider using on the homepage and it looks terrible (no pictures are appearing and the text has lost all formatting).
What I would like is for my blog to appear on my main page/homepage under slide like this:
Could you please tell me how to make this happen 🙂GeneratePress 2.1.3July 31, 2018 at 4:11 pm #637342Peter
I have been experimenting with Settings > Reading.
I think what I am trying to do is have a static homepage with “your latest posts” on that static homepage, under the slider, exactly as they appear here: http://78s.b5b.myftpupload.com/blog/
Can you all please let me know how to do that?

I would place “your latest posts” on a static page.
Then I would add the slider to that page using hooks or a page header. Better yet, I would use the new Elements module in GPP 1.7: https://generatepress.com/gp-premium-1-7/July 31, 2018 at 5:23 pm #637386Peter
Thank you Tom. Sorry to be a pain, but could you explain to me how to place my latest posts on a static page? Are you saying I should create a static page called blog or something and I can make posts on the static page? I am not sure how to get posts to show up on a static page.

1. Create a new page and name it “Blog” – you can keep the content empty.
2. Go to “Settings > Reading” and set the “Front Page Displays” option to “A static page”.
That will allow you to choose a static page for your front page, and a static page for your posts page (blog).
That’s where you’d select your newly created “Blog” page.July 31, 2018 at 5:28 pm #637394Peter
Thank you. So to be clear, one I move all my posts (I only have three) over the static page, then I delete my current blog page which is not static?
Will I have any problems by having a static blog page? Is there any reason to avoid that?July 31, 2018 at 5:31 pm #637397TomLead DeveloperLead Developer
It’s all standard WordPress functionality, so nothing bad will happen. Your posts will exist as they do now, but they’ll live on that static page instead of the home page 🙂
