What exactly is a blog page and how do I use it? Is that basic WordPress stuff or is it something special in the Studio Press Themes?
It's just a page template set to display your posts. The options to control it are in the genesis settings.
If you use WordPress as a CMS and not a blog, you may have a separate section or page to display a blog, that's what it's used for.
thanks but how do I set one up really? I can see the settings etc but where is the blog page? I think I am missing something obviously!
I don't know if I need one or not. thanks!
To set one up - create a page. Use the "blog template". Done 🙂 - it will automatically populate with your posts.
First up you need to decide if your want your front page (also known as the home page) to display a static page (this would be content which does not change frequently) or a dynamic page. A dynamic page would update itself with your latest blog posts at the top which would then descend in date order.
Much of this would depend on what sort of organisation you were building a site for.
