Front page into a static page, please please help! (4 posts)

    Ok, so I've read through as many of these posts as I can and they all say the same thing and that 'same thing' doesn't work for me.

    My site is EffortlessTransactions.com. I want a few static pages for information to the realtors in the area and a blog page.

    I am using the template: sprachkonstrukt2.

    The first page, titled Home, is the blog page that is automatically installed and the other page, titled 'Sample Page' is also there.

    I would prefer to have the currently titled Home page to be titled Blog and have the currently titled 'Sample Page' titled Home; from there I would prefer to have the Blog page at the end of my menu and the newly titled Home page be the static page.

    However, I am open to having the Blog page first, but I still need to figure out how to change the name from 'Home' to Blog.

    I would prefer that all subsequent, static pages, not have the option for comments.

    I have gone in and I HAVE tried to make the Front Page a Static Page by going into Settings---> Reading and changing it there AND I've also gone into the Appearance---> Template ---> Customize and tried changing it there...all to no avail.

    (I have even gone to the developer and was told it was a wordpress issue...)

    Does anyone have any thoughts or ideas??? I'm about ready to settle for imperfection but I have to assume that someone out there knows how to change the word 'Home' to Blog in the provided menu :(

    Please note, I am a novice....FYI.

    Thank you so much in advance,

    From what I can see that theme does not really support front page since it doesn't have a front-page.php One way to achieve that would be to add it yourself or create a child theme.

    As for the menu WPYogi's links are good reading material and provide you with needed information.

    As for the pages not having comments you can turn that off in the discussion panel.
