I have set up a category called 'blog' and have all of my posts displaying from this category. I have selected to display 4 posts / page therefore there is a link at the bottom that says older entries. However, when I click on "older entries" button, it takes me to the store page. I think the url is causing this problem but I have spent the whole night last night to figure it out and I still haven't found a solution yet.

My website is: www.talis.com.au

My blog is: www.talis.com.au/?cat=28 (how to change it to www.talis.com.au/blog?)

Go into Settings > Permalinks, and change the Permalink to a Custom Structure:


You may need to update your Menu in Appearance > Menus also.

Hi, thanks for your reply. This is what I've got after changing it. talis.com.au/category/blog – Natalie Feb 11 '13 at 4:40
@Natalie: Hmm, I can see there are no entries on page 2. I assume you have more than 4 entries in the Blog category? – Steve Feb 12 '13 at 5:22
Try creating a blank page called Blog, and then setting that page to be your posts page in Settings > Reading. You'll have to add it to your menu also. – Steve Feb 12 '13 at 5:25
I've tried what you've mentioned above. However, what's showing on my blog page is the same as the home page. Is there anything missing when I am doing this? What I've done was: – Natalie Feb 13 '13 at 11:42
1. Created a php file called blog.php 2. Set up a page called "My Blog" 3. Used "My blog" as posts page 4. Added "My blog" to main menu – Natalie Feb 13 '13 at 11:43
