Creating a Static Frontpage (2 posts)

    Hi All!

    I've done some reading on the forum and I have learned how to create a static frontpage (Settings -> Reading). I want the static webpage to feature on martijnboersma.com however, and not on a page like martijnboersma.com/home or martijnboersma.com/welcome for example.

    I would like the frontpage to serve as a click-through page, like on gladwell.com.

    Any ideas? Thanks!

    Usually you can create a file called front-page.php and then use that as your template for the page.

    After creating the file, you would add Page 'Home,' then choose 'Front Page' as your template.

    Then change the settings in Reading to make Home the static page.
