    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 to

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

    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 you do not have access to PHP or server configurations to be able to make these changes.
