Let's say we go for Admin - Appreance - Customize - Static Front Page

There we can see the Front page and Post page options when we select A static page

These two options are not there if we pick up Your latest posts

So my question is, what is the difference between Front page and Post page? A google search didn't help me.

Both are pages. For front page create a page with content. For posts page create an empty page ( no content ). Now select them in customizer accordingly.

  • Where can we view such a Posts page @Frank? – Nam G VU Jul 15 '15 at 0:14
  • Add this page to the menu and call it from there. In admin area go to Pages -> All Pages and view your Posts page there. – Frank P. Walentynowicz Jul 15 '15 at 9:08
  • Thanks @Frank. From Front Page, how can we browse to Posts Page? – Nam G VU Jul 15 '15 at 9:18
  • Add Posts page to the menu. Make menu visible on Front page. Selected Posts page from there. – Frank P. Walentynowicz Jul 15 '15 at 10:37

Front Page

The page you set to Front Page will be displayed when you visit your website at first (Something like Homepage of your site). If you don't use this setting, your site will display the list of blog posts in stead whenever someone visits the site when the site launches.

Posts page

The page you set to Posts page will display the list of blog posts (normally called Blog page) in stead of its contents whenever someone visits this page of your site.

  • Thanks @TrangDinhVan. From Front Page, how can we browse to Posts Page? – Nam G VU Jul 15 '15 at 9:18
  • Use menu bar, we can browse to any pages. Go to Dashboard > Appearance > Menu and set the menu bar there (it is up to the support of the current used theme) – Trang Jul 15 '15 at 12:44
