Removing Blog Posts from your Drupal Home Page

By Lynn Beighley, Seamus Bellamy

You may prefer not to clutter up your Drupal home page with blog entries, especially if you post frequently. To control where your future blog postings show up, follow these steps:

  1. From the Dashboard menu bar, choose Structure→Content Types.

    The Content Types overlay opens.

  2. In the Blog Entry column, click the Edit link.

    This takes you to a form that controls how your blog entries behave.

  3. Scroll down and expand the Publishing Options settings.


  4. To remove future blog postings from the front page, deselect the Promoted to Front Page check box.

  5. Click the Save Content Type button.

Although you have made sure new blog postings won’t make it to the front page, the blog entries you created earlier is still there. This is easy to fix. Follow these steps:

  1. Browse to the front page of your site.

    You see your previous blog posts.

  2. Click the title of the entry.

  3. Click the Edit tab.

  4. Scroll down to Publishing options and expand this section, and deselect the Promoted to Front Page check box.

  5. Click Save.

    Your blog post is no longer on the front page.
