    Hello!

    I have moved from a page builder to WordPress. I want to set my homepage to http://www……com (it’s currently an archive). The content for my home page is now on a post: http://www…..com/home.html. Please can you help me resolve this?
    Thanks so much in anticipation. 🙂

    Hi there,

    Not quite sure if I understand.

    When I click on the logo and navigate to the home page, it is indeed the posts page:
    https://www.screencast.com/t/OmgYPa4zqq8c

    The .com page should be your default home page which is set within WordPress setting:
    https://wordpress.org/support/article/settings-reading-screen/

    Thanks so much for your response, Leo. Yep, I knew to look there or in customiser. But…

    I’m confused about the settings for homepage. You can choose a static page or post, but both choices bring up the same list of pages – there are no posts to choose from.

    The content for the homepage is on a post at the moment which allows me to use Yoast for description and title.

    I suspect the answer is obvious, but I’m new to WP having been on a page builder for the past 9 years, so I’m sorry if I’m appearing a bit dense. 🙂

    Hi there,

    Homepage options are:

    1. Static Page – this can be any page you choose but you cannot choose a single post from your Blog, WP doesn’t allow it and its pretty painful trying to make that happen.
    2. Posts – this displays the blog page ie. list of posts.

    Ah, I now understand – best to simply move that content to a page.

    Thanks so much, David. 🙂
