Single Post as Homepage

  • Not sure exactly what you want. You can certainly create a Static Front Page with a template to retrieve a single post.

    Or you can modify your home.php template to do a custom query where you only fetch the latest post.

    Mik I think that is what I’m looking to do. I basically want my homepage to be my latest post. Where people can comment and do everything else you would be able to do on a single post page. Is this possible?

    Thanks for all your help!

    I’m looking for the same functionality, Christina did you figure this out allready?

    Hey Mike,
    yeah kinda got it to work. It ‘s kinda a hack but it works I guess. check it out http://www.standout.tv

    Sorry I meant to address that “bartsurminski” not “Mike” I was looking at the previous post.

    Thanks, i’ve created a workaround by ‘featuring’ my post, so it always shows on top, then i’ve put my homepage to blog posts.
    I’ve replaced my home button by a ‘featured’ button, so it will show all my featured blogposts on the page. This way i can make my serious blogpost stand out on the frontpage, and have my secondary blogposts (about wordpress tweaks/solutions etc.) on separate category websites.
    Check out http://surminski.eu to see how it looks
