Setting Up Your Vantage Blog

Vantage 4.0 uses the index.php file for your blog’s main page.

On new installs, your blog should already be setup correctly. If not, follow this tutorial on how to manually set it up.

Confirm Blog Page Exists

Look at all your pages and find your blog. The default title of the Vantage 4.0 homepage is, “Blog”. Yours may be different.

It should already be assigned the “Posts Page” attribute.

If the page doesn’t exist, go ahead and create a new page. Add the title “Blog”. Leave the main content section empty.

Set Posts Page Attribute

  • Go to your “Settings” => “Reading” page
  • Set the “Posts Page” to the blog page you either created or want to use
  • Save changes

Set Background Image

Without a main background image, your main blog page will look pretty plain.

  • Edit your blog page
  • Go to “Set featured image” and select or upload a new image

Make to use a large high-resolution image (1920×1080 or greater is recommended) otherwise it will look pixelated.

You can use the default image we provide, or set your own.

Final Result

If you followed the tutorial correctly, here’s what your blog page should look like (minus the exact header image and blog post content)
