    I know it’s possible to have the latest blog post go on the bottom of the Home page under the Evolve content boxes and also have the posts appear on a dedicated Blog page. But I have forgotten how. I had it set up that way, then stopped blogging and removed the blog entirely, and now want to start it up again. I can easily put the Blog page back, but I can’t figure out how to put it on the Home page, too. Can you help me please? Thanks.

    Hi Sydney, what you are looking for is the Post Slider option in the Customizer. Enable it, then enable it also on the front page. Then, in the front page builder, you can place it wherever you want by dragging the block in the “Elements display & order section”. Let me know if you have any additional questions.

    Thanks Evgeny, but I am unable to drag the post slider out of the Header Area and into Content Area so I can put the most recent (or any) post BELOW the four content boxes that I already have at https://www.marlissmelton.com. The only way it shows up below the four content boxes is by setting the blog to show on the Static home page in the WP reading settings. Also, I have enabled as you say, but it is just showing big blocks under the Bootstrap slider and above the content boxes. I don’t see any blog post.
    Help!

    Hi Evgeny, was that what you wanted me to do? Put the info in my last response and click it to private? I still need your help.
    Thanks. Best wishes and stay safe,

    Hi Sydney, I will take one more try to answer, hopefully, it will be a good solution for you ). 1. Go to Settings->Reading->Blog pages show at most. Set here how many blog pages you want to show on your home page. Then open a new page, call it Blog (for example), add a classic block in Gutenberg and through it add our BLOG shortcode to show your blog on this page. Done. Hope it works for you.
