Why does All in One SEO offer a "Use Static Front Page Instead" option?

When I click on the Enabled option, the "Home Title" and "Home Description" disappear. I have a Premium theme. Do I enable the Static page thingy or not under general settings?


Please note that this is a Premium Theme, not a free theme. Also the settings all go funny in the AIO SEO PRO plugin when you click "enable."


Please note, I am not asking about my theme. I am asking about which setting I am to use in the AIOSEO.

Don't know about that one. But you can write to THEIR support. I did it with Sauron, the theme I picked in WA, and they have a marvellous support and fixed all my problems and gave me instructions for to do it myself in case it happened again...

My friend just bought Avada and wants me to work on it for him. I might be asking you some questions in the future if that's ok.

You are always so kind and sweet and helpful. But, please, YOU are the first to care for, then the others. It is like in airplanes, where they say, first you need to take on the oxygen mask, then take care of your children!

Excellent analogy. You are a marvelous individual, however, Something tells me there is still so much more to Heidi than meets the eye.

Hi Chris, You have another option. If you have one post that you would like to show on the home page all the time you can make that one "sticky" (available in the right column when editing a post) and it will always appear at the top of the page while all your new posts roll right under it. For example, my site http://www.creatingincomeathome.com has my review of WA as the sticky post and will show as the first post all the time and my new posts fall under it. Just thought I would point out another option. You could also place a banner code alone in a post and make that sticky so that the banner stays at the top of the blog roll. Have a great day!

Well it depends where you want your visitors to go first , a static page is basically giving you an outline what the site is about, with sort of navigation through the page, or you can just have your home page as the current posts page, up to you my friend...

Okay just checked out your website, and it said to give suggestions to better the website, so I'm giving my 2 cents.. Too much font , too crowed... Now it could be because I'm reading it on my iPad, I'll check it out again on desk top in the morning.. I would love to know what the site is about.. Lol

You will see that the "static" button refers only to the first page of our website. If you want the first page to be a rolling blog page where each post rolls on top of the previous one, then you don't click. If you want you first page to be static so that, in essence, the page just gets longer and longer as you add content, then you click the static button. Try both and see how you like it. It changes with just the click.
