    Hi P

    The easiest way to setup your Blog page with Vantage is to:

    1. Don’t select your posts page at Settings > Reading, leave that as default – unselected.
    2. Head to your Blog page and select the Blog page template in the right column.

    Once you’ve selected the Blog page template you won’t be able to edit that page, it will just display your posts. It’s governed by the settings found at Appearance > Theme Settings > Blog. If you want to be able add static content to your Blog page then try this:

    1. Select the Default page template on your Blog page.
    2. Assuming you have our Page Builder plugin installed, click over to the Page Builder tab and insert the Post Loop (PB) widget. You can then insert other content around your posts.

    Thanks. You are awesome. That worked. Now if I can just get all the art from the previous blog posts to import!.

    Glad that helped.

    Did you just import content via Tools > Import? If so your urls would have changed so you’ll need to manually go into each post and update them to your new domain.

    If not, send through some more info and we’ll do our best to assist.

    Yes, I did import through tools.
    Then I downloaded the uploaded files to my desktop and then downloaded them to the wp content-upload. They are there, but now I understand why they are not “there”. bummer. I have close to 500 posts.

    Originally this site was a joomla site. The blog was a word press. I deleted the joomla site and rebuilt as a wp. I then choose the same theme for the site and the blog. So I was thinking…
    1. If I could just attach the existing wp blog site. it has the same name with the /blog on the end then I would not have to worry about importing the existing images.
    2. merge the two sites.

    Thoughts?

    Not quite sure I’m following you there.

    You can try a plugin like this to sort out the image urls: http://wordpress.org/plugins/search-regex/.
