The default setting for the front page is Your latest posts. This setting allows you to display a blog-style front page. You can, however, select any page on your site to be displayed as the front page instead of your latest posts.

If you select A static page, you can select which existing page on your site will be displayed on your front page.

You can also select which page will display your blog posts. This page should be different from the one you’ve selected for the static front page and should not be set to use the Blog Page template.

Notice: If your theme uses the front page to display widgets, the widgets will be displayed regardless of which setting you choose here. If you prefer to display your latest posts or a static page on your front page, you’ll need to remove all widgets from all front page-related widget areas.
