Widgets

This section will allow your to manage all widgets areas and to add, remove or edit widgets. For more info regarding the widgets please read the Widgets chapter.

Static Front Page

This section will allow you to select a page to use as the home page template. By default, WordPress displays your latest posts on the home page, but this can be changed to display customizable widget areas. The widget areas can contain your latest posts, past and upcoming events, ministries, causes, sermons, projects, sponsors, or any other widgets available in WordPress.

To set up a page to use as a home page, go to Pages → Add New from the WordPress Administration Panel. You can name this page whatever you like, and any content you enter here will be displayed alongside the widget areas. However, it’s important you set the Template (under Page Attributes) to Home page for this to work correctly.

If the Page Attributes panel is not visible, go to Screen Options at the top of the screen, and make sure Page Attributes is enabled under Boxes.

Using the same method, add another page for your posts, but this time do not set the template to Home page.

Next, return to the Customizer → Static Front Page. Set the Front page to the first page you created, and the Posts page to the latter page you created.
