How to change WordPress from a blog to a website.

Most people who try out WordPress for the first time end up thinking it’s only for blogs because they don’t know how to change it from a blog feed to a normal looking website.

Turning it from a “blog” to a “website” doesn’t mean you can’t have a blog on the website. You can always go back and add that later as it’s own page or a part of another page.

STEP 1:

From the WordPress dashboard click “settings” on the left-hand side of menu items.

STEP 2:

In the sub-menu that pops up when you hover over the settings button click “reading.”

STEP 3:

Toggle the button from “latest blog posts” to “a static page” and make sure you have the page selected from the drop-down menu with the page that you would like to display as the home page. You can assign the blog post page but if you do not plan to have a blog on the site this will not change anything for you.

STEP 4:

Press “save changes” and go check the home page of your website. From here you should see a normal looking website.
