Add blog page

edited January 2012 in Airborn Posts: 4
I am wondering how to add a blog page that strictly shows a truncated version of the latest posts. This would be in addition to the home page. Example. I want my home page to show the last post in full, but if someone clicks 'blog' in the menu it would take them to a new page with a list of the latest posts. Similar to the page in the example: http://themes.apollo13.eu/airborn/blog/

I am using the Airborn theme.
Version 1.2.5.1
wordpress version 3.3.1
Link to the blog: http://74.204.162.83/

Thank you!

  • I was able to make the 'blog' page using your steps in the instructions. However, now my home page no longer shows the Slider. Plus, I want my home page to show the entire blog post and the separate blog page to look like the one in your example. Thank you!

    Hi,

    Unfortunately Blog page is only one that is not supporting slider. So this could be hard.

    If you wish to show static page on home page like this http://themes.apollo13.eu/airborn/home/home-page-with-static-page/ :

    1. Create page that you wish to use as blog page
    2. go to Settings->Reading->Front page displays
    3. choose 'A static page (select below)'
    4. In 'Posts page:' choose your empty page for blog.

    With regards.
  • I understand what you are saying, but there must be a way around this. It seems like your example site has it working the way I am looking for.

    I would like the home page to be exactly as it is now: http://www.aliontherunblog.com/
    And then have a separate page that looks exactly like your example: http://themes.apollo13.eu/airborn/blog/

    Secondly. Can you take a look at the home page. The Nivo Slider seems like it is taking a very long time to load. There are only 5 images in the slider and all of them are under 150kb each - it seems like it's taking longer than is should.

    Thanks for the help in advance.

    Nivo looks normal(as for our theme).

    About making other page for blog http://apollo13.eu/docs/airborn/#!/airborn_main_settings_strongairborn_homepage_look_strong

    Creating other page as Blog:
    1. Create empty page that you wish to use as blog page
    2. go to Settings->Reading->Front page displays
    3. choose 'A static page (select below)'
    4. In 'Posts page:' choose your empty page for blog.

    With regards.
