Make latest post my homepage1 user found helpful
I just started with C5. I want my latest post to be my homepage. So every time I post a new article, that post must become my home page. I have already posted two articles and when I visit my site I see the "Welcome to Concrete5" page which is the default home page. Any help with that please?
This block scans all your blog pages and lists them with a summary.
You can add such a block to your home page. Set it to list by latest and only 1, and to show all of the entry (not to truncate it). So you end up with a list of 1 most recent post with a summary that is actually all of the post.
If the block is a page list (rather than a specialised blog list), you may also want to look at some of the marketplace addon templates and variations for page lists, for further content and formatting options.
Further details depend on which blog package you are using.
2. Select 'Edit' to put the page in edit mode
3. Find 'Add to main' >> Click on 'Add to main'
4. Select 'Add Block'
5. Select 'Page List' from the list (Should be the 6th one down the list)
6. Configure the 'Page List'>>
6.1. Under 'Number and Type of Pages', set it to 'Display 1' & then set it to display 'pages of type- 'blog entry' OR '**All**'
6.2. Under 'Location in Website - Display pages that are located: 'beneath another page'
6.3. Click on 'Select Page'
6.4. Select the 'Blog' page
6.5. Under 'Sort Pages' >> Select 'Pages should appear' >> 'with the most recent first'
6.6. Now your done configuring the 'Page List' block >> click 'ADD' to add the block to the page.
7. You should now see ONLY your most recent blog post in your homepage
I'm not sure if I've missed anything (trying to do this from memory); If I have, then please feel free to correct me. Hope it helps!
