1st - I would like to have access to the front page in order to make changes. It seems that I don't currently have this access, or at least, don't know how to access it using the wordpress editor.
However, the front page is supposed to update with summaries of the new blog posts, and also represent my business.
Is this the information that you need? Please advise.
Good start! :)
Okay, I assume that you want your blog posts to display on your Front Page (that is, as opposed to having the Front Page have some custom content, and your Blog Posts appear as another Page of the site)? If so, you need to modify (or create) a template file called
home.php, which will serve as the "master" template file for your Blog Posts Index.
If, on the other hand, you want your Front Page to have some custom content, and to display your Blog Posts Index as a separate Page (e.g. "Electronic Magazine and Blog"), then you need to modify (or create) a template file called
front-page.php, which will define the custom markup for your Front Page. (And if you further need custom markup for your Blog Posts Index, you would once again need to use the
home.php template file.)
