The default Posts Page displays every post published on your site in reverse chronological order. For each post, the title, excerpt, date published and author are listed. (See sample below.)
- Create and publish a page with just a title – no body text, featured image or categories
- Go to Dashboard > Appearance > Customize, or from the black admin bar at the top of any page, click Customize
- Click Front Page
- Under Posts Page, select the empty page you created in the first step
- Click the blue Save & Publish button at the top of the panel
This list below shows how your post summaries will displayed, with each summary including its title, author, date published and excerpt. If a post has a featured image, it will show up as a left-aligned thumbnail with each summary.
Customizing a news page
If you would like more control over how you list posts, you can create a custom news or blog page using the Posts element in Tailor. For example, you may want to display posts as a grid rather than a list, or edit which fields are included (eg, author, date, excerpt).
You can also use Tailor to limit the number of posts shown on a page. For example, you could embed just the three most recent posts on your homepage.
Sample archive page format
The designated Posts Page may not include any text other than the list of posts. Posts will be listed in reverse chronological order as shown below.
