If you are a blogger then this might be what you want but if you are running a business website and wants to change that blog feel of your website then you need to change the settings for WordPress default front page.

This is also true when you want to keep front page and blog separate by adding a blog link in WordPress main menu.

Before changing WordPress front page behavior, you need to create a page which will act as a static front page.

  • From your dashboard go to Pages > Add New.

  • Create an attractive page and Publish.

You can use slider, add gallery, product testimonials to fill your front page.
