    Same with me.  I can't seem to get the blog page setup to change.  I have set my front page to home, and posts page to blog.  When I change the layout on the blog page to "grid" view, nothing happens it just stays the same.  Any help???

    I have the same issue....it would be nice if the answer were posted here for everyone to see since it seems there are a few of us with the same problem - Tripod theme.  Marie - maybe you can tell us how you fixed it.

    Hello, I'm sorry for late answer here is a solution:

    1. Create a new template and lets call it "Blog-image"

    2. Hide the default row and edit the new row elements : http://i.imgur.com/BSsh4zg.png

    3. Configure it with the following settings: 

    -Choose element type:Latest posts

    -Select view type: List view

    -List view excerpt : Display excerpt

    -Thumbnail size: Medium thumb

    -Element behaviour :None of those

    -Order by: Date

    -Order: Desc.

    4.Save the row, update the template settings

    5. Create a new page, call it Blog and select it-s template as Blog-Image.http://i.imgur.com/9rUSfix.png

    6. Publish the page and you will see the wanted result.

    Hello. The same goes for me. Followed the steps exactly, but not working for me either. I also have an unanswered ticket.

    Sorry, forget to say. Please set the created template to the index Layout so the wordpress /blog path to be configured for this template. also you can select the new created page as the posts page in settings > reading.

    Hello, I was trying to create a blog medium thumbs page as here http://demo.cosmothemes.com/tripod-colored/blog/blog-with-medium-thumbs-list-view/ but I can't.

    I don't undertand how to use layouts  (under tripod menu). I mean which one is associated to the blog page? Posts?

    @Lisettecruiz

    I would like to create a blog medium page like in your site, would you be able to explain me how to do it?

    Thanks

    @moko-creative - I had to open a ticket to receive help on it as well, then followed the step by step instructions of the designer. I am not a good IT person at all, so it took a few tries
