In this tutorial, you’ll learn how to display a page on your homepage with one of WordPress’ built-in options.

How to Display Any Page on Your Front Page

You don’t have to name the page “Blog”, but it makes it easy to remember what the page is for.

Assign Pages

Now that you have a page ready to display your posts, it’s time to assign pages for your homepage and posts.

Head over to the Reading settings menu (Settings > Reading), and locate the first setting called, Front page displays. Select the second option, and you’ll get access to two dropdown menus.

The first option will let you select the page you want displayed on your homepage. The second one will let you decide the page you want your posts displayed on. Select the empty “Blog” page you just created for the posts page.
