How templates work
Setting up the Front Page template
Step 1 — Create the page
From your site WordPress Dashboard, click on Add a new page and name it “Home” or alike in order to easily remember it.
Step 2 — Set the “Front Page” template
Set the Front Page template by reaching the Page Attributes section (screenshot).
Step 3 — Set a Static Front Page
To finish this up, let’s put the above-created page on front page. By default, WordPress displays the latest posts there — to change that and show your new “Home” page, follow the standard method:
- Launch the site Customizer and click on the Static Front Page tab on the left.
- Select the Static Page option, then choose your new page from the Front Page drop-down.
- Click on the Save & Publish button to save your static page settings.
Step 4 — Add the widgets
- While viewing the page that you set as having a Front Page template, click on Customize in the upper left menu bar.
- In the menu that appeared on the left, go to the Widgets section.
- Choose any area you would like to add widgets to.
- While editing an area, click on the Add a Widget button. From the menu that will appear on the right, select any widget that you would like to add.
