How to Create a Static Front Page for WordPress

In case you’re new to using WordPress, this is one of the most basic and essential things you can know for creating your website. If you don’t want to show blog posts on the front page and would rather display a static front page, you can do this easily through the WordPress dashboard. It does not require the addition of any extra files or template editing.

Simply create a page through Dashboard >> Pages and publish the page.

If you need WordPress’ blogging functionality but want to show it on another page then add another page. Give it a title and leave it blank. If you don’t need WordPress’ blogging functionality, then you can skip that part.

Last step is to go to Administration > Settings > Reading and select your static page and a page for your posts. Click save and you’re done!
