WordPress Tutorial – Make a Static Page Your Home/Front Page
NOTE: Updated tutorial at bit.ly for WordPress version 2.7. This Beginner-level WordPress Tutorial by Mark McLaren of McBuzz Communications shows you how to make a static WordPress Page your home page (also called “front” page). The default WordPress home page in most themes shows the chronological blog post entries with the most recent post at the top. You can create a static page using the Dashboard – Write – Page, and then tell WordPress to use that page as your home page (using Options – Reading – Front Page). This WordPress tutorial also shows you how to change the order of page navigation tabs or links.
