Home

There are 2 ways for setting up and manage home page.

  1. By default when new WordPress installed under the Dashboard ▸ Settings ▸ Reading  Your homepage displays Your Latest Posts.

    That means that all your posts will be visible on your home page by default. In this case for managing home page you need to go to Dashboard ▸ Appearance ▸ Customize ▸ Home

  2. Other option is manually create a page and set it as a home page from Dashboard ▸ Settings ▸ Reading ▸Your Homepage Displays = A Static Page.

    For managing home page in this case you need to edit your home page and change settings under the Boombox Page Advanced Fields.

Homepage Settings #

From this section you can do the same actions for setting up the home page, as you can do it from Dashboard ▸ Settings ▸ Reading.

  • # Why the home page settings changes don’t apply

    Please go to Customizing ▸ Home ▸ ​Homepage Settings and check what value have been chosen under Your homepage displays.

    Please note that customizer home section settings apply only for “Latest posts” value. If there was chosen a static page as homepage, then you’ll need to enter edit mode of that page, and find Boombox Page Advanced Fields metabox. You can find in that section the same options from Customizing ▸ Home
