Making Custom Page the Homepage

    Hi!

    Yesterday I asked how to delete the automatic homepage that WordPress gives you and I was able to do that by creating a Custom Menu. Unfortunately, when I visit my website it still directs to the automatic homepage that WordPress gave me instead of the homepage I created. Does anyone know I can make the homepage I created what comes up when you visit my website?

    I'd greatly appreciate any insight! Thank you!

    The blog I need help with is howardgardner01.wordpress.com.

  2. Pages are static and are for content that rarely changes. They sit outside of the blog structure and you cannot post to multiple pages in any blog. There is only one main page for posts in a blog and all posts will display on the main blog page. There is no way to exclude posts from the main posts (blog) page.

    The front page of the blog by default will display your posts (not pages) 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 a static front page “Welcome” for your site and a “Blog” page for posts.

    If you choose a static front page then you have to create two pages as I said above. After you do that you go to > Settings > Reading and make the designation change and click “save changes”. http://en.support.wordpress.com/pages/front-page/

    Thank you! That worked perfectly! You've been incredibly helpful. Do you have any advice on making the tagline for my header 2 separate lines?

  4. I'm sorry but that's not possible as we cannot edit templates or themes. Perhaps it can be done via CSS editing if you purchase a custom design upgrade but I can't say that for sure as I don't help with CSS editing. Would you like me to flag this thread so Staff provide an definitive answer re: CSS editing?

    No, that's fine, I had a hunch that was the case, but thank you for clarifying!

  6. You're welcome and best wishes with your blog. :)
