Setting Frontpage and Blog Archive

By default, WordPress shows your most recent posts in reverse chronological order on the front page of your site. Many WordPress users want a static front page or splash page as the front page instead. This "static front page" look is common for users desiring static or welcoming information on the front page of the site.

To set a page as the frontpage you need two pages created. 

  • A page for frontpage
  • A blank page for Blog

Having these two pages created, go to Admin > Settings > Reading and find the settings for Front page displays and set the pages accordingly.
