  • Is your blog page designated as the posts page under Settings > Reading? – Milo Oct 12 '13 at 20:07
  • yes, I did. that is the page – Adam Oct 12 '13 at 20:16

When you designate a page as the posts page, is_page() will no longer be true for that page, as it is now the "Home Page". Use is_home() instead to test if the posts page is the current page.

    It seems counter-intuitive, but when you set a static front page and posts page, what you'd think as your "home page" is the front page and can be tested via is_front_page(). only when you haven't set those options will your front page be both the home page and front page. – Milo Oct 12 '13 at 20:29
