The home page is the front page of your website.
By default, WordPress will show a list of your latest posts as your home page. The amount of posts being shown depends on the
Posts per page setting under
Settings > Reading in the admin area. Keep in mind that altering such parameter, will also change how many posts are displayed in archive pages.
You can also choose to have a regular page as the home page of your website. After you’ve created a page and published it, head over to the
Settings > Reading screen in the admin area, and select it under
Front page displays > A static page.
After you’ve set a regular page to be the home page, you’ll be able to editing the contents of your new home page by editing the page itself.
If you choose to display a list of your latest posts in your home page, you will find a specific set of options dedicated to your home page under the
Windmill > Home screen in the admin area.
