WordPress Home Page Static or Latest Post

Your Most Recent Blog Post or a Home Page

What would you like to see first ?

One of the basic setting in WordPress is to select what should be visible on your website’s “Home” page.

You can change this from your Dashboard by going to Settings > Reading – from this screen you will see you have two options.

  • Your Latest Post
  • A Static Page

Which option you select is up to you and will depend greatly on what kind of website you are creating for example a business website may not want the blog area of their website to be the first thing people see when they go to the company’s website.

Depending on what type of theme or how fancy your theme is there may be alternate options when it comes to setting up the website’s home page. Some have the ability to show both a page and post. I tend to avoid these fancier themes mainly for the fact that they are limiting in other ways.

Have a website that shows your latest post as the home page may not be the right choice depending on the nature of the website. If the website is a true blog then yes that may be a suitable choice. If it is a business website or if you have a concern regarding SEO you are probably going to prefer have more control over your home page’s content and formatting. As I said earlier, each website is different and having the right Theme can make all the difference.


Now that you know how important the Home Page is for your WordPress Website what’s next?
