Creating a blog page #

Use the second method for creating a blog page as the WPBakery Page Builder element to get more control.

Blog page template #

To create a page with a blog template and add it to your website:

  • From the dashboard go to Pages Add New;
  • Type in the blog page title;
  • Choose Blog page template in Page Attributes section;
  • Now Blog Settings with options appeared on your page;
  • Hint the Publish button to save and publish the blog page.

Now all your post should be visible on the current blog page. To show only specific categories on the page:

  • On the blog page go to Blog Settings Blog categories;
  • Choose specific categories from the dropdown menu;
  • Hint the Publish button to save and publish your changes.

Blog WPBakery shortcode #

An additional method of creating a post page or add some posts on the page is using a Blog Posts WPBakery Page Builder element:

  • From the dashboard go to Pages Add New;
  • Choose the Backend Editor mode (Switch to WPBakery Page Builder mode previously);
  • Type in the blog page title;
  • Choose and paste a Blog Posts element from the popup menu;
  • Hint the Publish button to save and publish the page.

As you can see using this method allows you to combine Blog Posts with any other WPBakery Page Builder elements on a single page.

Set your blog as posts page #

Now if you want to set your previously created blog page as a blog page for your website:

  • From the dashboard go to Settings Reading Your homepage displays;
  • Toggle checkbox to static page (select below);
  • Choose from the Posts page dropdown menu your previously created blog page;
