You’ll be presented with the preview window which will display your newly selected page as the front page of your site, if you’re happy click on the Save & Publish button.

Optional – Create a blog page

If you wish to have a blog, you also have the option to set-up a separate page which will display your recent posts elsewhere on your website.

Just as you did by setting a static “home” page above, you’ll need to create a new page and title it “blog”. Then return to the customiser, and select this page from the “Posts Page” drop downs.
