in WordPress Dashboard Settings -> Reading I have set "Front page displays" to "Your latest posts", which is the desired behavior.
The problem now is that the <title> tag of this front page always carries the title of the last blog post. Instead, I would like to define my own static title and meta tags for this front page. How do I accomplish this?
(I've searched the web and the plugins, but did not find a simple solution to this simple problem. Also, I want to keep the "your latest posts" setting, because other settings will bring undesired side effects...)
