I am currently in the process of setting up a blog on my wordpress website. However, my site was originally built by a web designer and since Ive learned a lot about wordpress and now understand the basics of php I would like to create the blog myself and save some money at the same time.
So in order to setup the blog I am first trying to change the homepage to a static page. I have gone to 'settings > reading' and tried to change it here, although for some reason the 'home' page isn't appearing in the drop down box. I think this has something to do with the way my designer set up the site originally. So does anyone know of an alternative route to make the home page a static page or how I get the home page to appear in the drop down.
Thanks in advance,
