    Hi to all WP members here.
    I made a search in the forum and in Google as well but couldn't find solution for my problem.
    I have few troubles with m current theme and don't know how to solve them.
    I'm using CMS theme for my website foxcleaners.co.uk with static homepage.
    The problem is that i have to choose a post which the theme will use as a homepage.OK,i made a post for the homepage and set as noindex,nofollow,but Google has indexed this post!!Also can anyone tell me how Google found this post?There is no links to it.I don't have categories menu on sidebar..?The best solution will be if someone can tell me how to set a unique homepage (without to choose post or page).I love WP but this is huge problem for people like me who wants to use it as CMS system.

    Probably best to ask that on Google forums.

    My question is wordpress related not google related.
    Basically to have a static homepage,i have to create post and set it as a homepage.For example if a create page mysite/page and set it as homepage.I will have same content twice - mysite.com and mysite.com/page
    My question is how to avoid that? I want my homepage to be unigue,because google will see this as a duplicate content and disvalue my site

    By default, WordPress does not allow selection of posts as a static front page, but rather only pages can be selected as the static front page.

    So, how are you selecting a post?

    What Theme are you using? What Plugins do you have active?
