    I am trying to redirect the homepage to a category instead of a page, I want viewers to be able to see all of my projects instead of just one post. Is there any way to change the home page, or redirect gabriellepeck.com to gabriellepeck.com/projects?

    Thank you so much for all the help, sorry if I am asking dumb questions, I am not very experienced.

    The blog I need help with is gabriellepeck.com.

    Hi there!

    You cannot set a Category Page as your site’s Front page. Perhaps instead you’d like to use a page template. If this interests you, be sure to read through this tutorial about setting a static Front page.

    I had already read that tutorial and I am still a bit confused. I do not want viewers to only see one page, or one post, I want multiple shelf pages available so that they can scroll through all of my projects right of the bat. Can I just override the static single page home page by redirecting the site to the category I want to display as my home page? I am sorry if I am misunderstanding something from the tutorial.

    Hi Gabrielle!

    It’s a real bummer, but you cannot do what you are asking. WordPress only allows you to choose a Page, not an archive for the home page.

    So there is no way to redirect? That seems really surprising.

    Thank you for your patience with me!

    Unfortunately, there is not :( If you were self hosting your site, there are countless ways to do this; however, on WordPress.com you do not have access to PHP or server configurations to be able to make these changes.
