How to Create a Custom Home Page in WordPress

The Arvixe Blog is using WordPress if you can’t tell already, but we have a custom design. One of the part about our design is that we have a custom homepage. You may see many websites on the web using a custom homepage for their WordPress. In this tutorial we will show you how you can create a custom homepage by combining the use of custom page template, and WordPress admin panel.

Click on Settings > Reading

Select the option of Static Page, now select one of your page to be the homepage, while another page to be your blog page.

Once you have done that, save the settings and now you have a custom homepage.

You will now have a custom page being displayed as your front page, and a separate page being displayed as your blog page.

Method 2

Method 2 does not involve the use of Custom Page Template Technique. All you have to do is create a new file and name it home.php, and you can use any WordPress parameters in there. This file will automatically take over your index.php, and it will be displayed as your homepage. You can use this method if you do not want to have a separate blog page.
