Changing the Default Landing (Home) Page

How to look like a normal website instead of a blog

This turns out to be the key feature to losing the “bloggy” look and setting up a WordPress site that looks like a regular website. In my case, the static Bacon Please (Home) page is the default landing page while the Blog page appears in the menu as just another page. The point is that visitors, by default, land on the static Bacon Please home page, not the Blog page.

Here is how it’s done — Actually quite easy!

One of the great features of the Bouquet theme is the option to display a static page full-width, without the sidebar. By setting my regular (static) pages to the Full-width, no sidebar option, those pages lose the sidebar, becoming full-width pages with no blog features—the sidebar is then retained only on the actual blog pages.

How cool is that?
