Redirect /home page link to blog directly.

Recommended Posts

Site URL: https://www.thesoaresprotocol.com/

Hi guys!

So I am trying to redirect my "Newsroom" link in my homepage menu to my blog. 

The issue is...the settings in the page won't let me change the slug to point towards the blog because of the /home portion of the URL.

Is there a way to point this link


to the blog? (https://www.thesoaresprotocol.com/newsroom)

Thank you!

Okay, here is the way I would do it. On the middle man page put a blog summary block in a section on that page, put your blog in the unlinked section of your site. This will make the blog list appear on that middle man "The Newsroom"  page and you won't need the big read more button. I do this kind of thing a lot on my site. Here is my home page: https://myrandomviews.com/ click on stories, it looks like my blog page listing, but it is actually a summary block and each item goes right to the post. The actual blog page is here: https://myrandomviews.com/stories which is in the unlinked section of my website. I do the same thing with my photography lessons, go to a page with a summary block. I also have some special story links on my nav bar that go to the specific list of  posts using a category filter. Here is one of the links:

You can add a section to a portfolio page which is also the home page, add a content link block inside that section,  choose your blog as the content. The blog title will be in the box.  You will need to adjust the text in that block with site styles to make the font bigger. This also makes it take  one click to access  the blog not two. I think this much simpler than my post above using a summary block, which you may still like to use.
