I am trying to add my blog page (posts) tab to my main menu. When I go to the menu page, it only allows me to add individual posts to the menu structure. Not the whole posts group with show all of the posts (blog) when clicked on. How can I add this to my menu?
What you’ll want to do first is create a page for your blog posts and publish it. Then go to the Settings section in your WordPress dashboard and click on Reading. At the top here, you’ve selected to have a static page as your front page. You’ll find a drop down menu for choosing your “posts page” which is your blog page. Select the page you just published and save your changes.
Now you can add that page to your navigation menu and you’re visitors will be able to access your blog archive.
Thanks Bill. One more small issue. When I created the new page for the blogs, when I go to it, there are no pics, just the summary of the blog. How can I change this to include a pic with the summary?
Glad to hear you were able to add the blog page. If you set a feature image for a post and set the post to use the image format, that image will be displayed above the post title.
The other option is to change the blog from showing an excerpt to showing the full content. You can change that by going to the theme options page and clicking on the general tab. There is a drop down there to choose what the blog page displays. If you select the content option it’ll show all of the content of each post including the images.
