In WordPress default theme (Twenty Seventeen Version: 1.4), users able to add 5 pages/posts into homepage.
This can be done entering to “Appearance/Customize/Theme Options/” field. Four “+ Add New Page” fields there. And plus homepage page. Totally I can place 5 pages/posts into my homepage in default theme.
Front Page Section 1 Content
Front Page Section 2 Content
Front Page Section 3 Content
Front Page Section 4 Content
I could not saw an option like above in Generate Press theme.
Could you please help me about how can I add some of my pages/posts into my main page?

So you are trying to add posts into your static home page?
If so I would recommend Tom’s WP Show Posts plugin: https://en-ca.wordpress.org/plugins/wp-show-posts/
Or are you looking to create sections? https://docs.generatepress.com/article/sections-overview/
Let me know.December 20, 2017 at 7:10 am #453828Aybars
“Sections” are not useful for me.
At a glance, “WP Show Posts” plugin seems to displaying all posts in a page by using shortcodes. But I need a few specific pages/posts to display in mainpage.
Even so I will examine more “WP Show Posts” plugin.
I think I explained clearly in my first message.
In default WP theme, its easy to add specific page/post by using “Appearance/Customize/Theme Options/” field.
In my opinion this is useful and necessary option.
Its available in basic default wordpress theme.
If there is not an option like this in Generate Press, it will be great convenience for users like me integrating this option into Generate Press Theme.December 20, 2017 at 9:30 am #453941TomLead DeveloperLead Developer
GeneratePress doesn’t have an option like this. It was an interesting idea by the Twenty Seventeen team, but even they will likely remove it in the next default WP theme.
We would have to get a lot of requests by a large number of users to consider adding something like this, as it’s a pretty major feature, and does directly conflict with our Sections module. I’m also not sure it will work nicely when Gutenberg is released in 2018.December 21, 2017 at 6:48 am #454576Aybars
I understood, thanks for the reasonable explanation.December 21, 2017 at 10:18 am #454704
