If changing the front page is what you want, here is a how-to:

1. Log in to the administration area of your WordPress site.

2. Click on “Settings” in the left sidebar to expand the “Settings” submenu. Click on “Reading” in the submenu.

3. Click on the radio button labelled “A static page” in the “Front Page Displays” section to set the front page to display a static page. Use the drop-down menu labeled “Front Page” to set which of your WordPress pages you would like to use as the front page. Use the drop-down menu labeled “Posts Page” to select the page you would like to use to display your WordPress posts, since they will no longer be shown on the front page.

4. Click the blue “Save” button at the bottom of the page to change your default home page on your WordPress site.
