How to set up a blog page in Genesis 3.0

Genesis 3.0 removed the blog page template. If you would like to display your blog posts on the homepage AND on a separate page, it's a little more complicated — but not impossible! We'll show you how in this tutorial.

Gutenberg Editor

1. Go to WordPress > Pages > Add New and create a page called "Blog."

2. Look to the top left of your screen and click on the 3 dots.

3. Click on "Options." An options menu will appear:

4. Place a checkmark next to "Custom Fields" to enable that panel.

5. This panel will be added to your page editor:

6. Click the blue "Enter New" link.

7. In the left field, put query_args

In the right field, put showposts=6&cat=all

You can control the number of posts that display per page here. "6" is the number of posts, so that number can be changed to your number of desired posts per page.

8. Click "Add Custom Field" to save the new custom field.

9. Click "Publish" at the top left of the screen. View the page and you should see your blog posts!
