Flexsitez - Blog vs. static "Front page"

The Flexsitez template allows the user to determine whether site visitors will "land" on a static 'home-type' page, or the most recent posts (or blog feed). 

The DEFAULT will be for them to land on the blog feed. 

If you would prefer to have your site visitors land on a STATIC page, the first thing you will want to do is create the page via Pages > Add New. You will want to NAME the page accordingly, add your desired content (text, images, etc.), and PUBLISH the page. 

You will then want to go to Appearance > Menus, and ADD the page to the menu, drag and drop it into the SPOT you would like the button to appear in the menu, and SAVE your menu changes. 

Finally, you will want to go to Settings > Reading, and set the 'Front page displays' selection to 'A static page', and select your 'home page' from the dropdown for 'Front Page'.



When using thise set up (if you intend to use your Flexsitez template in a traditional blog manner, and add posts regularly), you will also need to set a page for your POSTS to appear on. 

This can be done in a similar way as the 'home' page; you will start by creating the page via Pages > Add New. You will want to NAME the page accordingly (for example - blog),  **making sure you select the BLOG theme for the page**, and PUBLISH it. 

You will then want to go to Appearance > Menus, and ADD the page to the menu, drag and drop it into the SPOT you would like the button to appear in the menu, and SAVE your menu changes.

Lastly, you will want to go to Settings > Reading, and select the new page from the dropdown for ''Posts Page'

***IMPORTANT NOTE!!!***

If you already have a BLOG located at www.yourdomain.com/blog (because of a template switch, etc.), your new blog button will NOT lead to your Flexsitez template blog feed until the old/existing /blog folder on your account is renamed (www.yourdomain.com/blog/OLD) or deleted. 

The reason for this is that the www.yourdomain.com/blog is an ACTUAL (live) path, which will overwrite the integrated Flexsitez blog feed!!
