    To create a different homepage you’d need to create a child theme (http://codex.wordpress.org/Child_Themes) and in the child theme you’d create a new template front-page.php (see http://wphierarchy.com/) which would replace the default homepage.

    I try to explain the child theme concept here: https://speakerdeck.com/zu/find-a-great-theme-and-adapt-it-as-a-child-theme. But I guess the slides are not very helpful if this is completely new to you.

    Of course the first step is to set “a static homepage” in the “Set Frontpage” section of the theme customizer or in the “Settings / Reading” section of the WordPress backend.

    To adapt the homepage without coding there are also some plugins like visual page builders of all sorts (eg siteorigin page-builder) or conductor plugin

    Hi Monica,

    All the advice I would give you was already mentioned by Christian (thanks!!) – it can be a little tough, but it’s a good thing to learn.

    Our Sections add-on which is being released shortly should help design one page templates as well 🙂
