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?)

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

  • 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.
