    Hi there,

    Does anyone know how to get the latest blog post to the front page of a website?
    I am very new to this and I haven't got a clue :)

    Also, if I change my twenty ten theme to the twenty eleven theme, will all of my work be wiped out? Blog posts, tag cloud, Facebook like button, etc......

    Thanks!!!

    By default, latest blog posts go to the homepage. However if they aren't you will need to add a WordPress loop to the template files.

    If you change your theme, all of your pages, settings, blog posts, uploads etc stay the same, the only things that change are the files, so if you changed anything within a template, this change will not go into the new theme (as the files are different). your changes however won't be lost in that theme should you return to it.

    Do not edit the Twenty Eleven theme. It is the default WordPress 3.2 theme and having access to an unedited version of the theme is vital when dealing with a range of site issues.

    Create a child theme for your customisations. Once your child theme is active, we should be able to help with the customisation.

    Don't edit the Twenty Ten theme either. Create a child theme for your customisations.
