Making a Blog Page using the Genesis Framework

Most StudioPress themes use a widgetized home page. This means that the standard WordPress blog page is missing and you have to make your own blog listing page.

Please NOTE!
Modern StudioPress themes do NOT need a special blog page set through the “Page Attributes” setting (as I show in this tutorial). Use the standard WordPress way of making your blog page.


First make a new web PAGE called blog.

Then go to: Dashboard > Settings > Reading >
