Support » Installing WordPress » Front page display settings – where have they gone

  • Resolved Begadoc


    As a a newby to WordPress I am struggling to follow tutorials which refer to settings in Dashboard which have been changed in 3.3

    I am trying to alter the front page which I gather used to be done via Settings – Reading and selecting Post or Static page and if the latter which one. That option is no longer available o that settings screen and I can’t find where it is.

    So how do I change my front page from the default latest Post screen to a static page which I can edit?

    Many thanks and Merry Christmas.

  • Hi Ian,

    It’s still on my Reading settings page. What do you see where it used to be?

    While sorting out this issue, you can quickly make this change by going to and choosing the page you want for your homescreen.

    Merry Christmas!

    Hi Jeff
    Thanks for the reply. Dashboard – Settings – Readings produces

    Blog pages show at most – Data entry box
    Syndication feeds show the most recent – Data entry box

    For each article in a feed show – Select button Full text or summary

    Encoding for pages and feeds – UTF8 set as default

    & that’s it!

    I’ll have a look at your suggestion in the meantime.
