[resolved] All Pages appearing on static front page (7 posts)

    Hi,
    First of all I want to thank you for creating such a great, user-friendly theme. This is probably the 8th theme I've tried and it's the most customizable without going in to code. Awesome!

    My question is regarding the pages. I'm creating a site with a static front page. I've called the first page Home. I've then created a subsequent page called "About Us." I've got the tabs figured out across the top menu, but the "About Us" page is showing up as a post on the static front page. I don't want it to show up on the front page at all. Is there a way to change this so other pages show up in the tabs across the top, but not on the actual front page? Also, is there a way to delete the title "Home" at the top of the content on the first page? Here's my site: http://www.topphoenixcriminallawyer.com

    Thank you!

    Dori

    The one shown on the front is not really a Page but a Post. You have to create a Page on Dashboard -> Pages. Then set that as the static front page on Dashboard -> Settings -> Reading

    Is there a way to change this so other pages show up in the tabs across the top, but not on the actual front page?

    Add this code on Frontier Options -> CSS

    .home #menu-main {
        display: none;
    }

    Also, is there a way to delete the title "Home" at the top of the content on the first page?

    Go to Dashboard -> Appearance -> Menu
    Create your menu the way you want then set it as the "Primary" menu.

    Thank you so much! I did a workaround where I made the first post sticky and changed the front page to posts instead of static first page, but I couldn't write subsequent posts or they would show up on the main page. I will try your solutions and report back.

    I truly appreciate the quick response and the great theme!

    Ok so I tried it out and I think I will keep the first page as a sticky post because I like having the picture at the top (and it didn't seem like there was a way to have the picture with a static home page. Is there a code I can input so that only the sticky post is shown on the first page? And the rest of the posts will display on a Blog page?

    Thank you again for all of your help. :)

    Why not?

    Is there a code I can input so that only the sticky post is shown on the first page?

    Why not just transfer the content of that particular post to a page. This does exactly what you want.

    As I mentioned on the previous reply
    – Click "Pages" in the Admin Area
    – Create a page. Name it "Home"
    – Add the contents of your "current" home(the post with the picture) to this new page.
    – Click Publish.

    – Create another page.
    – Name it "Blog".
    – Leave it empty. Click Publish.

    – Go to Settings -> Reading
    – Front Page Displays As = A Static Page
    – Set "Front Page" to "Home"
    – Set "Posts Page" to "Blog"
    – Click "Save Changes"

    The "Home" page will always be the front page.
    All new "Posts" you create will appear on the "Blog" page.

    OK, I got it now, thank you so much! The problem was that I thought the photo displaying at the top of the page would only be displayed for posts. I didn't realize you could set a featured image for the page and that is what would display at the top. Followed your instructions step by step and it worked. So cool!
