How to custom just the very first page of home page, the rest remain the same. (2 posts)

    Hi,

    In default, the home page is the list of all the blogs and it is paged. I wanna custom the first page, only the first page. the rest pages remain the same as list of blogs.

    e.g. display specific blogs from some categories on the first page, and list of blogs on the second page and so on.

    I know that i can achieve this by "static page", but I did not want my first be static, it should be dynamic that can fetch the newest page.

    thank you.

    First, let's try to get some terminology clear here.
    You're using "blogs" where WordPress language usually uses "posts."
    The whole site is a blog, composed of posts and pages.

    You can assign any page as your home page, be it a static page or an archive page.

    But "it should be dynamic that can fetch the newest page" isn't clear to me. The newest "static" page? Not sure how I'd do that.

    It could easily show only the 1 most recent POST, if that's what you want.

    We don't generally talk about the newest page, as they're static, so publication date shouldn't be relevant.

    Hope this helps.
