While I don’t necessarily wish to establish a "STATIC" Front page, I would like to employ a custom page as BOTH my "Posts page" and my "Front page". I’ve created a PAGE titled "Teaching Kids To…" with a "Page of Posts" type template to serve as my "Posts page." Doing so, facilitates
- Titling my "Posts page" (or blog page) as something other than "Home"
- Utilization of a custom template (if so desired)
- Option to add custom fields (if so desired)
- Option to tweak and monitor the page via Yoast WordPress SEO plugin, for blog specific focus keywords (e.g. "Teaching Kids to").
Trouble is… while I would also like for this page to be my home page (or page_on_front) WordPress complains when I try to select the same page for both "Front page" and "Posts page" under Settings->Reading, AND navigation on the front end actually breaks down if I try to simply ignore the WordPress warnings.
Surely someone has discovered a suitable work-around?
