Add a text area to the front / home page


#1

Is there a way to either make the home page static, or even better we’d like to be able to add a text area to above the posts and maybe one below them as well.

This will greatly assist in search engine indexing and optimization by being able to add keywords to these areas.

Hi,

You can make your homepage static by setting a static homepage in wp-admin -> Settings -> Readings, set your Static Front Page here, so that page will be your static homepage.

Yes, thank you I eventually found that

What I’d like to achieve is to have as a homepage a static page but in the middle of a row of recent posts

Something like this

Hi,

Unfortunately that’s not possible in theme options or by editing the page, you can only add those text areas above and below posts by custom coding them in content.php or in index.php.
