I am new to WordPress and recently doing some stuff with WordPress.

I am using WordPress and want to make theme.

I want to show a full post on the home page and at the bottom I want to show next and previous post links.

There will only be one category in which I will post and only one post will display on the home page at a time.

Reducing the number of blog posts to show at Settings->Reading from 10 to 1 might do it for you.

Adding to this. I think you need to make sure that the WP-PageNavi plugin is installed. Most themes support this including default Wordpress themes (twentyten & twentyeleven) so you can refer to those as an example. – Matthew Xerri Sep 28 '11 at 12:59
  1. Create a php template to display a Page of Posts. See codex.wordpress.org/Template_Hierarchy to ensure that the page you create will use this template.
  2. Use the next_post_link() function and the related previous_post_link() function to display the links.
  3. Create a page in WordPress to act as your front page (doesn't need to have any content in it).
  4. In the WP Admin, under "Settings" > "Reading", set the front page to the page you created in #3.
