Is it possible to change the Home page so it's not a blog, but a page? And also is it possible to change the name of the homepage?

If yes, how is this done?

Thanks, Richard

To change the site Front Page to be a static Page:

  • Go to Dashboard -> Settings -> Reading
  • Change Front page displays from Your latest posts to A static page
  • In the dropdown beneath this option, select the static Page to use as your Front Page.
  • If you want to display your blog Posts somewhere, select a static Page to use to display them.

To change the title of your Front Page:

  • The Front Page will assume the Page Title of whatever static Page you selected above.
