Hey guys, I'm currently using a theme called EXTENSION for my website.

My homepage currently displays my latest posts only. I'd like to change this to a static page that displays say; Call To Action buttons only.

I would then like to link these buttons to my blog posts, reviews, etc.

Can I get any links to a tutorial on how to create a static homepage or can anyone assist me in doing this?

Any feedback is greatly appreciated.

Thanks

Hello Codjoe. I can try to help you as I spend a FULL day teaching myself and succeeded. I watched a lot of videos and used a free plugin called elementor. I do not think you need the plug in though I just wanted more options but I am sure it can all be done with wordpress but you would have to ask someone else.

If you want a static page, you need to create 2 pages: a home page and blog page. Then within wordpress, go to "appearance" then "reading" and there you can change your home bage to a static page.

I also created a call to action button on my homepage using elementor and basically put my url of my blog page in the button widget which then take the user there.

If you decide to use elementor, there are so many easy videos to follow on Youtube. I warn you though that with the free version, you can not use this plug in for any of your headers or other pages other than the homepage. So you end up having to switch between wordpress and elementor depending what you are working on. That is why it made it complicated.

Hope this helps but ask me more questions if you need.
