How to set a static page as your homepage

Posted on 16. Dec, 2009 by in Screencasts

WordPress is a powerful blogging tool. It features posts,pages comments etc. But WordPress can do much more than be just a blog. It can be a Content Management System, which allows you to set up your WordPress install however you want. One popular use of WordPress is using it as a full-blown website, where the front page is just that, a page. An example would even be here on the WP Kick Start homepage.

So how do you do this you ask?

In your WordPress dashboard, scroll down and expand the “Settings” menu. From here go into the “Reading” menu item. Now on the “Reading” page, take the check box off the latest post option, and select the static page option. Finally select which pages you want where and save the page.

Here is a screencast showing the previous steps:
