Homepage & Blog Page Setup

By default, WordPress shows your most recent posts in reverse chronological order on the front page of your site. If you would like to create a more traditional website, you can set a static “home” page instead by following these steps:

Sign in to your WordPress admin panel.

1. Create a “Home” page

Click Add New in the Pages menu. Add a page called “Home” or whatever you want the title of your home page to be. Be sure to publish it.

2. Set a Static Front Page

Launch the Site Customizer and click on the Static Front Page tab on the left.

Select the Static Page option, then choose your new page from the Front Page drop down.


The preview window will display your newly selected page as the front page of your site.

3. Save your changes

Click on the Save & Publish button to save your static page settings.

1. Create a blog page

If you would like to have a blog, you have the option to set up a separate page to display your recent posts elsewhere on your site.

As with setting a static “home” page above, you will need to create a new page called “blog” and return to the site customizer, and choose this page from the Posts Page drop down.
