I have a child theme based on Blekathlon at http://betterhealthjourney.com/. I have chosen a static page as my homepage. Now how do I list the latest content - either on the page or a link to another page? I have linked to categories in my menu, but can't find an option to display a page or section for the latest content.

After reading other similar topics, I created a static page called plexus-success-stories. I put this code in index.html (replacing the original where am I code, but the posts are not listed (I have over 150 and want 8-12 with cover img and excerpt per page). What have I done wrong?

Code: Select all

if ($WHERE_AM_I == 'page' && $page->slug() == 'plexus-success-stories' && $page->isStatic() ) {
			include(THEME_DIR_PHP.'home.php');}
else if ($WHERE_AM_I == 'page') {
			include(THEME_DIR_PHP.'page.php');
}
else {
	include(THEME_DIR_PHP.'home.php');
}

Try this plugin. It shows the posts, the posts per category and the categories in a single page.

You can see a demo here.

Edi, do you know if this bug has been fixed in Bv3.13 and users can list all blog posts on a static page with working pagination?

No, it's not yet fully fixed. It has been forgotten. :-(

But you can use a page "Blog" for blog posts.

Unfortunately I can't. Changing advanced options only complicated things :cry:
I messed with this over a year ago, and with every 1 step forward I went 2 steps back.

Until this feature isn't fully implemented and working, there's no way to set a static page, and let all posts be listed on it. With working pagination, without breaking all other page's URL's and many others.

You have to set a page as mainpage, otherwise it does not work.
