How to use posts
Use ‘posts’ for dynamic content such as projects and events as well as personal reflections that might go in a blog. Using ‘posts’ also ensures that you will show up in the site wide activity feed.
To display posts, Go to the Dashboard, Click Appearance, then Widgets, select Recent posts (typically further down on the left) and drag that widget to the Primary Widget Area (on the right). Title the widget “Recent posts” or “My posts” depending on how you want to organize the site.
