I am sure that I am not the only one who has ever tried this, but I have been looking for days and I can't seem to find a formula to get this done.
What I want to do is to have at least 3 separate pages (the number will change over time) that have different blog topics on them. The pages will be connected to menu items in the primary navigation menu. The pages will look just like the home page, but with different blocks.
So, specifically, I have been trying to do two things:
1) connect a layout and a page
2) connect a content type and a block
I have been trying to create a custom block that can hold an image, a title, and text content in that order. And then create a layout with that block in it and a page using that layout.
Maybe I am going about it all wrong. I have not been able to find anything about doing these things. That's usually an indication that it's a dumb idea.
I am not really stuck on a particular format. I just want to document my projects which include very different topics, such as software, electronics, 3D printers, and other stuff. Any help is appreciated.
