    This may be obvious but I can’t seem to figure it out. I would like to have more than one blog pages. One for my video blog and another for articles (in blog format) and another for a regular blog. The topics are somewhat different and I’d like them to appear under separate menus?

    Hello Steve,

    There are various ways you could accomplish that with the theme. One way you could accomplish this that you could probably do from any WordPress theme and might be the simplest solution would be just to link to the categories themselves.

    Are you familiar with putting your posts into different categories in WordPress and then nesting those categories within other categories? So you could have:

    • Category: Blog 1
      • Category: Category 1A
      • Category: Category 1B
      • Category: Category 1C
    • Category: Blog 2
      • Category: Category 2A
      • Category: Category 2B
      • Category: Category 2C

    Then when you build you main navigation under Appearance > Menus, you’d just link directly to Categories Blog 1 and Blog 2 and WordPress will show them and their nested categories on their own page.

    I use a plugin called blog in blog. It allows me to go a bit further than Jason suggested by hiding categories from the home page and also allowing me to create a custom layout for the 2nd blog. This makes them pretty much independent from each other. Maybe there are ways to do this without the plugin but it’s working well for me.
