Homepages are definitely one of the most complex pages within a website. It is one of those pages where you want to spend most of your time and make sure every piece of content deserves to be there. A carefully crafted page, with attention to detail will make a user want to explore your website further.
Each theme is very different in style, design, layout and overall appearance. Therefore, Homepages are also very different from theme to theme. Generally a Homepage structure may look like this:
– Featured Galleries / Blog Posts
– About me
Of course, just as any other Page Template, you are able to make changes to the Page structure if necessary.
Below is a short, general video explaining the overall page structure for Fiji 2. Please consider this video just as a sample, as it cannot relate to all themes.
Assigning a Homepage
Creating a Homepage is just one piece of the puzzle. After your Homepage has been created, you need to “tell” WordPress which one of the created pages should be the Homepage.
To do this, go to Settings – Reading and adjust the “Your homepage displays” settings to display your desired Homepage.
Now, when users type in your Website URL they will land on the assigned page. Also, when clickin on the website Logo within the Menu, they will be directed to the Homepage. Thus, you can now remove “Home” from the navigation.
Here you can select any of the available pages as a Homepage.
