Homepage & menu setup

Setting your homepage

To set up your homepage, you first have to create a basic page, or any page template(about page templates later). After you decide what page do you want to use, go to Settings > Reading and in the Front page displays choose A static page, then select your just created page.

Also, please don’t select anything for your Posts page, otherwise your blog will not work!


Next, you should setup your permalinks to look pretty. Please go to Settings > Permalinks, choose the Custom Structure, and use this: /%category%/%postname%/

Setting your menu

For creating your main menu, go to  Appearance > Menus and you will see a panel where you can create new menus. Create one, add your created pages to it (from the left side panels) and save it. After this, in the left side you have a drop down box where you can select the Primary Navigation. Choose your newly created menu, hit “Save” and you’re all set.
