    Hi! I am very new to putting together a blog page. I *think* it is possible that this particular theme doesn’t support having more than one page that functions like my “Home” blog page (continuously running time stamped posts)?? I was trying to make a page strictly for my recipes that functions like my Home page. Is this possible? I tried to find where to copy it but it doesn’t give me that option. Also, if I choose to purchase a different theme that does give me this option, where would I find those details at in the description before purchasing? Thanks ahead of time for your help!

    The blog I need help with is holdtotheroad.com

    It sounds like you want to a category page for recipes. If you assign your recipe posts to the Recipe category, you can then link to the recipes page like this:

    http://holdtotheroad.com/category/recipes/

    Let me know if this would suit your needs.

    I *may* see what you are saying.

    So, if I create a “new post” and want it strictly on my Recipe page–I link it to the category/page I want it on? In other words, I have a recipe page and I would need to link the new post to my recipe page to make it time stamped there–and show up there?? Which would mean someone could click on my recipe tab and see that recipe?

    If you create a new post and assign the Recipe category to it, that post will appear both in your main blog and on the Recipe category page. There isn’t a way to remove the post from the main blog stream.

    Adding a link to your recipe category page in your custom menu will bring people directly to it. We have a full guide on how to create custom menus:

    This part explains how to add a category to your menu:

    Thanks so much! Are there themes that support having several “main blog pages”?

    The WordPress content-management system as a whole only supports one blog index per site.

    On self-hosted WordPress sites – where you install WordPress on your own server – it’s possible to customize a site through a plugin or custom coding, to set up a Custom Post Type for a specific content type, such as movies, recipes, books, etc. That would allow you to have an index page for each content type. You can learn more here about the differences between WordPress.com and self-hosted WordPress.

    Let me know if this answers your question, or if I can help with anything else.

    My pleasure.

    I’ll mark this thread as resolved and close it, but feel free to start a new one if you need help with anything else.
