is there any way how to achieve this? I've tried to google it, but I have no clue how to call it.

siteurl.com - for whole web

siteurl.com/news - homepage with news

When I add siteurl.com I have to by directly redirected to siteurl.com/new. It's needed because some google analytics setting or so which will be more precise. Thanks a lot for your help.

EDIT: siteurl.com/news - needs to be "frontpage" and set as "homepage" (theme template issue, it's really complicated to change it to a custom page. Something as "fake url" or so, is it possible to achieve this?

  • Create a site at siteurl.com and create a page Home, set it as custom homepage. Then create a page News and set it as blog post page to display blog posts. You can do that from Settings > Reading Settings section in WordPress admin panel. – Robert hue Jun 2 '15 at 10:39
  • Thanks, but that's not this case. We don't use any blog posts. I simply need change the url which is used for frontpage to site.com/news but it still needs to be the homepage... – kybernaut.cz Jun 3 '15 at 7:34

i think this can help you:

use the below code in your theme's functions.php

function redirect_homepage() {
    if( ! is_home() && ! is_front_page() )

    wp_redirect( 'http://siteurl.com/news', 301 );

add_action( 'template_redirect', 'redirect_homepage' );
