To create the static front page, go to the WordPress Administration Panels.

  • Create two WordPress Pages from the “Add New Page” panel.
  • Title one as “Home” (or another name) as your “static” front page.
  • Set the “Home” template to the default template or any custom template. Add content you would like to see within the content area of the “Home” page.
  • Publish the Page.
  • Title the second page one as “Blog” (or you could call it “News”, “Articles”, etc.). This page will be a place-holder for showing the Posts on your site. Do not use a custom Page template for this page! DO NOT add content to the Blog Page. Leave it blank. Any content here will be ignored — only the Title is used.
  • Publish the Page.
  • Go to Administration > Settings > Reading panel.
  • Set which page will be designated the “front” page. Choose from display your latest blog posts on the “Blog” Page and “static page” for the “Home” Page.
  • Save changes.
