I am currently using the Edegree theme. I am not experienced in coding but do understand a little bit.
In my theme there are no 'Menus' the pages automatically get put in the navigation bar. 'Home' is already there and has no related page in the 'Pages' section.
So when I try to set the 'Front Page' and the 'Posts Page' it is not possible (the post page 'news' works but just then displays the home page).
I want to have the slider on the home page but remove the blog posts on this and have just text. Then on the 'News' page have the posts but without the slider.
Is it possible for a novice to be able to change this or am I biting off more than I can chew?
If it is possible could someone point me in the right direction? Would I achieve it by using page templates or something else? Any hints would be great.
