I just started a new blog using Pro (my first time). I was with X for some time, but haven't used it in a while.
After a lot of searching, am I correct in discovering that I can't change the default Blog (home) page unless I use child themes? I see I can change "The Blog" and I can change "Welcome to ..." but I can't control the layout other than full width. I can kinda accept this, but I want more. Am I missing something?
Also, this is what I want to accomplish for the Blog...
Travel (main menu)
- Itinerary Page (drop down)
---- Post A
- Resources Page (drop down)
---- Post B
So, if I want to make Post A show up on BOTH the Itinerary page and the Travel Page, I place Post A under the Itinerary Category and make the Travel Category the parent of the Itinerary Category?
That's why I want to create a blog page for both the travel and Itinerary pages. I think I recall there's a Blog shortcode available. If so, would I create a page and insert the shortcode then? This would solve the 2nd paragraph.
Or, is there another way to do this?
