By default the front page of your WordPress.com site will display latest posts from your blog. If you would like to create a more traditional website, you can set a static “home” page instead.
Watch the video below for a quick overview of how it works, and read below for more examples and settings.
1. Create a “Home” page
In your site dashboard add a new page, and title your new page “Home.” Be sure to publish this page.
2. Set a Static Front Page
Launch the Site Customizer and click on the Static Front Page tab on the left.
Select the Static Page option, then choose your new page from the Front Page drop down.
The preview window will display your newly selected page as the front page of your site.
3. Save your changes
Click on the Save & Publish button to save your static page settings.
4. Create a custom menu
You may notice that you have two “home” links on your site menu, or that the pages on your site are not displayed in the order you wish.
The good news is that you can create a custom menu for your site in any arrangement you like by following the steps in our Custom Menus guide.
Optional – Create a blog page
If you would like to have a blog, you have the option to set up a separate page to display your recent posts elsewhere on your site.
As with setting a static “home” page above, you will need to create a new page called “blog” and return to the site customizer, and choose this page from the Posts Page drop down.
