I recently started doing some SEO improvements to this dog training website: dogsdayoutseattle.com but am still a newbie to WordPress.org.
Currently, the homepage (Awake theme) is set as a posts page rather than a static page, which does not allow me to edit the home page. I would like to create a static home page and have read the Codex tutorial on it. However, it doesn't explain how to do this for existing websites.
Currently my home page code lives in index.php. I've tried to copy that code and paste it as HTML into a New Page (thinking I can just transfer/copy the code)and create a static from that.
If I need to create a static front page, how do I take the code/design that was added into the default homepage without losing it?
I don't even know if I'm asking this right. I understand how to create a static front page, I just don't want to lose the design elements that she added to the default "Posts" homepage.
