There are two ways of setting up a custom home page and blog page on your WordPress website –
- You can create a new page and the change the page template to either “Blog” or “Blog excerpt”.
- The other way would be to use the reading settings. Set the front page option to “A static page”. Create two blank pages and then set one page to the “Posts page” and the other to the “Front page”.
