Make front page static

Setting up a Static Front Page

By default the front page (“Home”) of your blog will display your latest posts. You can change this so readers see a static page instead, and can view your posts on a different page. We made a welcome page and a blog page which we left blank except for the title ie ‘news’ ‘events’ ‘happy days’ etc

  1.  Click Settings -> Reading on the left menu in your Dashboard.
  2. You will see the following options. Set yours to look like this:

After making these changes, posts will no longer show on the front page of your blog. The static page “Home” or whatever you want your front page title to be’welcome’ ‘the shop front’ will show there. Visitors will need to click on the link to “Posts” page to see your posts.
