Set Page as the Home Page of your site

So you just created an awesome new page and want to use that as your home page! Great :-) 

WordPress has a built in feature that will allow you to use any page on your site as your site's home page.

Just follow these simple steps below and you can inspire the web with your fresh new design!

  1. Go to "Settings > Reading" from the left side WordPress menu and look for the static page setting. 

  2. Select the "static page" setting.

  3. Then select the page you want to use from the drop-down menu (The page must be Published first before it will show here).

  4. Don't forget to click "Save Changes" when you're done.

Here is a screen shot to show you where to find this settings page:

Set or Change the title of your Home Page

When setting a static home page, you'll need to be sure your Title is set under "WordPress Dashboard > Settings > General" for the site title as that would carry over through to your home page.

Bonus Tip

Changing your homepage to a static page will remove your blog posts from your home page.  If you want to show your blog posts on a different page just follow these steps:
1. Go to Pages > Add new and create a new page called "blog".  Save and publish this page (do not create this page with our LiveEditor or Pagebuilder or this process will not work.
2. Go to Settings > Reading and in the second drop-down (the one that is called "Posts page") - select the "Blog" page that you just created and click Save Changes. This will then set your blog  to appear on that page.
