Home Page Setup

You can choose what’s displayed on the homepage of your site. It can be posts or a static page. To set a static homepage, you first need to create two Pages. One will become the homepage, and the other will be where your posts are displayed.

Create a New Page

First, create a new page on your website, with the WP Dashboard > Pages > Add New link. Give the name the new page Front Page, for example. Publish your page.

In the same way, create a page that will display your blog posts. Give the name the new page Blog, for example. Publish your page.

Assign a Front Page

Next, you will need to set one of the created pages as your site’s Front page, and another page as a Blog page, via the WP Dashboard > Appearance > Customize, within the Homepage Settings panel.

in this picture, the static page is called Front and the blog page is called Articles

Then hit the Publish button up at the top of the Customizer window, and you should be all set.

Frontpage options

Once you have set a static page as the homepage, you can select additional options for the Frontpage: content layout, visibility and order of sections.

To set additional options, go to the Customizer’s Front Page Sections panel:
Page Content – front-page content display options;
Visibility & Sorting – front-page sections visibility and order.
