I have applied a different view to the blog homepage on my SharePoint blog site. Now it seems I cannot restore it to the original view where it displays all the blog posts and the content, and it now will only display a list of each blog post.

Is there a way to restore this? I basically just want a home page with all blog posts, I can do it by removing the site and making a whole new site, but I don't really want to do that.

Thanks, Mark

In SharePoint 2010, edit the page add a new web part and select the posts list from Lists and Libraries section. After the web part has been added, change the selected view to <summary view>.

    If your Categories web part breaks, also add it the same way and switch to <Summary view> and Summary Toolbar. Dec 18, 2014 at 8:33
  • This solution works for SharePoint Online Blogs as well, and If you enable Blog feature in site level instead of creating a Blog Sub Site. Apr 6, 2018 at 11:47
