What themes (free) can offer me a static homepage for a website vs. blog?

  1. I am trying to make my homepage static. The tutorial said I may need a certain theme to allow me to do this but I've tried a dozen different themes and cant find one that offers it in the settings/reading box. Can you tell me which themes offer this??

    The blog I need help with is 1516n9th.wordpress.com.

  3. Every theme here can have a static front page. The only tutorial that applies to http://1516n9th.wordpress.com/ is found here http://learn.wordpress.com

    You must be logged in as Admin http://en.support.wordpress.com/user-roles/#administrator under the exact same username account that registered the blog to access the blog's dashboard.

    Clicking this link should display all your blogs registered under the same username, including the hidden ones: https://dashboard.wordpress.com/wp-admin/index.php?page=my-blogs&show=hidden

    If you do not see the blog here http://en.support.wordpress.com/my-blogs/ then
    follow this guide > http://en.support.wordpress.com/my-blogs/#my-blogs-dashboard-visibility

    If you have lost your log-in information you can visit https://en.wordpress.com/wp-login.php?action=lostpassword
    and if required click the "Need More Help" link and complete the form for account recovery.

    Create a static front page:
    By default the front page of your blog displays all published posts (not pages) in reverse chronological order, with the most recently published post on top. That is for the convenience of your returning visitors, who come to read your latest post, and who are not likely to be happy with being compelled to click through the same static page with the same blah, blah, blah on it every time they visit the blog looking for the latest post.

    However, if you do not want all the posts to show on the front page, then you can create a traffic killing static front page called for example “Welcome” for your site and a “Blog” page for posts. To do that create two pages first http://en.support.wordpress.com/pages/

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