I want my homepage to be just a brief phrase. Currently it is my About page as a Static page. I just want to create a static Home page different from the About page.
I know this is probably an easy question but I’m still a rookie.
Let’s start with this link https://wordpress.com/theme/karuna to the detailed theme support page with setup instructions. Note the Setting Up Your Front Page section there.
This is a one or the other situation. You can create a static front page, and then a separate page for all your published posts. You can do that and the first step is to create two pages and then designate them appropriately.
(1) All posts on the front page which is also called the home page and is the URL of the site by default.
