My posts all display on my main front page by default, but I’d like to have a static page there. How do I control that? September 27, 2006 at 4:05 am #31211 rsathyaMember I think it has been answered couple of times, You can control the same from ur Dashboard Options -> Reading and select the Static Page u want :) September 27, 2006 at 5:15 pm #31237 familyhistorianMember Yes thanks. That’s been most helpful. September 10, 2007 at 12:59 pm #31544 gregladenMember Interestingly, that does not always work.. For me, right now, when I look at Options -> Reading on my wordpress 2.1 self hosted site control panel there is no such option.
