Front Page

  1. Hello!

    I want the front page/home page to be just like any other websites...not a blog home page.

    I followed all the instructions on how to change that. However, when I reach step #7 (click settings>reading), I get stuck.

    It does mention that it's left on the my dashboard. But the only "settings" I see is at the bottom left. And in those settings, I cannot find anything that leads me to "Front page display" or "static page".

    Please help!

    I thank anyone in advance for their time and help.

  2. When you click on 'settings' on your dashboard have you then clicked on 'Reading' ? That then gives you the option to change the appearance of your front page.

    That's right. :)

    There is only one page in a blog for posts. The front page of the blog by default will display your posts (not pages) http://en.support.wordpress.com/post-vs-page/ in reverse chronological order, with the most recently published post on top.

    If you do not want all the posts to show on the front page, then you can create two pages ie. a static front page “Welcome” for your site and a “Blog” page for posts.

    After you do that you go to > Settings > Reading and make the designation change and click “save changes”.

    Front page displays
    _Your latest posts
    _A static page (select below)

  4. Thanks guys!

    I totally understand the steps. The problem is that there's nothing in "Settings" that goes to "Reading".

    I found a "General Settings" and the large icon "Settings"(bottom left). Nowhere in those did I find "Reading" or anything else about "Static".

    Is there another "Settings" somewhere?

    Where do I click?

    Thanks guys :-)

  5. I know why it sounded like I wasn't too swift. lol

    My problem is the ipad App. It's incomplete!

    I had the idea of going on the regular WP website instead of using the APP. Sure enough, I could totally see what the instructions were saying.

    Problem solved!

    Thank you for the help.

  6. That's good news. Best wishes with your blog. :)
