    Hello Carmit,

    The link is incomplete and invalid.

    You may want to post if you’re referring to the default MJ theme or the name of the childtheme.

    @Carmit
    Also, check to see if the page has been assigned under PremiumPress > Configuration > PAGE & BUTTON LINKS > BLOG

    This is the default design for the blog archive page, its already part of the core theme and when you add blog posts it will auto populate.

    @Carmit

    Also make sure you’re using the proper slug for the new page. For example, if the “blog” slug already exists when creating a page with same title/slug then it will be altered to avoid duplicate slugs. You’ll need to remove the old page with the ‘blog” and make sure the new page is using ‘blog’ (or whatever slug you intend to use).

    Here’s an example and also keep in mind that replacing pages and/or changing slug names effects the menus as well.

    @Mark

    It looks like bugs with the default template Mark.

    @Mark @James

    I only have one page with the title blog.
    I checked, and it linked properly under theme setup
    I have one post, it appears under listing for some reason (http://qllaborator.com/?s=)

    Blog page is empty https://qllaborator.com/blog/

    @James
    Thanks to your movie I managed to link posts to blog page.
    But it’s not as nice as the demo has it, I am not sure how to create the posts as nic squares

    Plus, the posts still appear under listings as well

    The only thing i am missing now is to make posts page like a grid…

    Do you have an example of what you’re referring to?

    What happens when you edit the blog page and change the template to [PAGE – BLOG]?
    It should add the default blog template under anything you’ve put on that page, so you may need to remove them.
