How to Change WordPress Homepage & Blog Page [Static Home Page]?

Hi, Guys it’s Anas here.

Today I’m gonna show you How to Change The Homepage on WordPress to be a single page as well as How to Set up a Separate Page for our Posts.

So when we install WordPress it’s set up to show a list of blog posts on the Home Page by default but sometimes we’re going to want to use the Specific Page as our Home Page instead and then have our blog posts appear on a different page.

To do this we just need to create a new Page to use as our Home Page and add any text, images and anything else we are wanting to add to it.

I have already gone and done this to see if sometime in the tutorial and I’ve called My Home really we can call the page whatever we like but I think Home makes the most sense.

Then, once we are happy with it we can publish our New Page.

Now we are going to add a second page which is where our Blog posts will appear.

So, we just need to click “add new” at the top and then give our page a title.

I’m going to use Blog For this example as it seems to make the most sense but once again you can use whatever title you like. We don’t need to add any content or anything else on this page.

Just give it a Title and Click on Publish.

Once both of our new pages have been published we just need to hover our mouse where it says “Appearance” on the left and then click “Customize”.

This is going to open up the Customization option for your Theme and if we click on the left where it says HomePage settings under where it says your HomePage displays.

We can change this from our latest posts to a static page under where it says HomePage. We can choose our new HomePage and beneath diary posts we will choose our new diary Page.
Once we’ve done this we can click Publish up at the top and when we visit our Site we’ll see that our HomePage has been changed and when we visit our blog page we see that our blog posts appear here.

So that’s How to Change The Homepage on WordPress to be a single page as well as How to Set up a Separate Page for our Posts.

I hope you find this Article Helpful.
