How to Assign a Static Page as the Front Page in WordPress

With Wordpress, you can use your website’s front page as a static page or portal, which can include a link to an internal blog page. A portal is a page that contains snippets from other sections of your site, with links to those sections.

To do this, you need to tell WordPress that you want a static page you created to serve as the front page of your site.

1

From the Dashboard, choose Settings→Reading.

The Reading Settings page appears.

2

In the Front Page Displays section, select the A Static Page radio button.

You need to tell WordPress that you want a static page you created to serve as the front page of your site.

3

From the Front Page drop-down list, choose the static page that you want to serve as your front page.

Say you choose to display the Welcome to my Web Site page. Don’t worry about the rest of the options on the Reading Settings page, because they don’t pertain to configuring which page to use for the front page of your site.

4

Click the Save Changes button at the bottom of page.

WordPress displays the page you selected as the front page of your site.
