If you want to edit the slug or title of the page to something else, for example, “Articles”, feel free to do so without any worries.
You don’t have to do this, but for the demonstration purposes, I just changed the Page title and slug of the “Blog” page to “articles”.
And, WordPress automatically adjusted the “Posts page” setting along with the Header menu.
In fact, the only reason why WordPress forces you to select a “Posts page” is to give you control over the title and slug of the Blog Index page.
Anyway, I reverted back the title and slug from “Articles” to “Blog” again.
In the next lesson, we will deal with the
index.php file to adjust the look and feel of the blog index page.
