Wordpress Static Homepage

March 31, 2009 in Wordpress How To | Comments (0)

To make a static word press homepage do the following:

Make a New Page (not a new post), publish it.

Then, Under Settings > Front page displays
Select: “A static page”

From the drop down, select the page that you created earlier.

You may need to edit the header.php to exclude or include only the navigation links you want to display:


<?php wp_list_pages('title_li=&include=1,2,3'); ?>

or


<?php wp_list_pages('title_li=&exclude=2,5'); ?>

The id numbers can be found by looking in your wordpress database.post table.
