Discussiontis but a simple blog!! I am still confused. How do you set a static home page and a blog page. I know to add a page named blog and set that as 'post page' but how do I set the home to homepage. it never comes up in my scroll down of available pages. Am I being an idiot....no comments ta!!

I am having the same problem. For example, I did my first post and published it, when I open my site, I see the post so I take it that that is my homepage, but it is not called homepage. Do I have to write a separate article for my homepage?

It's theme dependent, I prefer a dynamic "blogroll" for a Home page, where Excerpts of the latest posts are shown. You can control Excerpts when editing a Post by ticking the box in Screen Options (top right) which will put an Excerpt box underneath the editor window. Again, you'll need to set either Settings > Reading or Appearance > Theme > Options to enable a dynamic "blogroll" Home page. Rich.

You're not an idiot, it's entirely theme dependent. It's often possible to set this in Settings > Reading or in Appearance > Themes > Options. However, I'd recommend setting up a custom menu which is probably a better long term solution https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/training/creating-custom-menus-in-wordpress Rich.
