    • This guide helps you create a blank blog page. Now when you “Start Posting” as described above it will display your new blog posts on the page. You can customize the page by clicking “Pages” then rolling your mouse over the page, and choosing the “Edit” option. Then you can use the “Visual” or “Text” editor.

  1. My question on this topic has to do with having more flexibility in layout of blog without going into main code of theme. I’m using the Hydra theme and I like that my site menu shows up but the main pic shows up too which completely disrupts how my posts display. See my blog testing here > http://socal-cpr.com/stay-healthy/

    I tried adding a blog plugin to give me more flexibility but it had zero effect. Any help here would be greatly appreciated!!!
