I want the home link at the top of my theme in word press to display all the posts i have written so far but when clicking on it the page shows nothing.

I have already tried changing the settings as in: Going to Settings, then inside Readings, I had Front page displays as A static page and within it I chose Home as Front page but even then i get no desired result.

I can only display all my posts on my website, when i click on my homepage address lets say www.queries999.com but when i go to www.queries999.com/home, it shows a blank page.

In Settings -> Reading -> Front page displays select Your latest posts. Go to Appearance -> Menus. You'll see as the first item Home, which points to the physical page 'Home'. Remove Home item from the menu. Expand Custom Links. Enter / ( right slash ) into URL field. Enter Home into Link Text field. Click on Add to Menu button. Drag your Home to the top of the menu. Save it. Now delete your physical page 'Home'.

Update: If you don't have a menu defined, yet, you'll have to create one. Go to Appearance -> Menus. Click on create a new menulink. Enter your desired menu name in Menu Name field and click on Create Menu button. First add your Home custom link as explained before. Continue adding other menu items. When done, select Primary checkbox in Display location group. Click on Save Menu button. All done.

  • Before reading your answer I had already deleted the Home page. So I started following you from second step. But upon going to Custom Links inside Menus in Appearance, I find that the Custom Links portion including the Pages and Post are all greyed out. But still I went on and tried entering one right slash into URL field and Home into Link Text Field and then tried on clicking the Add to Menu button. But the button is inactive or greyed and no desired changes take place. I have taken a screenshot of my page and uploaded the same here: pasteboard.co/3fP8xmzJo.jpg Thanks again
