    I have posts. I have a blog page. Now how do I get the posts to appear on the blog pages I have created? Thank you.

    Create a page. Apply the “Post List” page template. That page will display all of your posts.

    In your documentation, checkout the video series called something like “Redefining the blog” — It goes over all this in a lot of detail and gives you many different options.

    Thanks. I just bought Swagger for my business because I liked it and knew I would get great support.

    My question about blogs is a little more complicated. I have 4 people blogging on this same site. How do I get an image of each blogger at the top of their blog page? I have a picture already installed on their actual blog pages, but the images are not showing up above the posts.

    I apologize, but there’s not going to be any feature for this and this would be a customization you’d need to make to the theme.

    The pages that you’re designating as your various “blogs” are not going to share any of the same templates as the individual posts you’re clicking through to or technically be linked internally in any way. So I’m not totally sure how you’d expect the blog page’s content (i.e. your bloggers’ images) to show at the top of the individual posts, you know what I mean?

    You can look into hooking your custom content to the top of content across the theme from your Child theme:

    Or possibly copying the content.php for single posts to your Child theme and editing it.

    With either of these methods, you’re probably going to want to implement some form of WordPress conditionals to display your content based on whatever criteria.
