    Unhappy adding a blog to pre-existing wordpress website

    Im probably just retarded but i cant figure out how to add a blog to an existing website i built with WordPress.
    I understand the 'posts' category in the admin menu, but i want to have my recent posts show up on domain.com/blog.
    how do i accomplish this?

    im sure its ridiculously simple. Like i said, im probably retarded but can someone explain this to me or give me a link to instructions on the codex?

    Hi,

    It's quite simple.
    In the WP back end create a page called "Blog"
    Then head to Settings -> Reading.
    Here you should set the option "Front page displays" to "A static page", then change your Posts page to "Blog".

    Now any posts you write will be available under domain.com/blog
