Hello everyone. I'm hoping you can explain how I can create a News blog on a Wiki that I administrate. What I mean is something like this or this; basically a specific type of blog post devoted to news and a page where they appear. And if I can get that up, I would also appreciate an explanation of how to create a box on our main page that displays the most recent posts from that blog category, like the Fallout Wiki's main page. If anybody can help me out here, I'd really appreciate it.Revitalizer 20:02, March 17, 2012 (UTC)

I think it's Special:CreateBlog, and then you add your posts to a specific category. —Airhogs777 WCB WS 20:43, March 17, 2012 (UTC)
No, it's not that. What was that page called? —Airhogs777 WCB WS 20:47, March 17, 2012 (UTC)
It's Special:CreateBlogListingPage. —Airhogs777 WCB WS 20:48, March 17, 2012 (UTC)
The Blog Listing Page is what I was looking for. Thanks for directing me there. I've figured out the rest of my question by the way. -Revitalizer 18:39, March 23, 2012 (UTC)
