I'm facing a big issue with the right way of implementing the static page in Wordpress. I've read almost for 5 days along now, and still can't figure out how it (should) work.
The problem i'm facing is as followed:
When I make use of the option "show latest posts" in customizer, I see the front page as it should be. I got the text of the homepage followed by the latest posts. The problem I'm facing here, is the homepage text is hard coded in my home.php. I want to be able to change that on the input field of the home in my wordpress editor.
So I understood i should make use of the index.php and create a page called "Home" and a page called "Blog". I set those pages as static page, and i'll be able to accomplish what I want. But i don't. I just can't get it done.
So I tried it with a complete new installation of WP in my local machine. Setup a brand new installation, created just 2 pages (home and blog). Go to Settings-> Reading -> Set static page: Homepage: Home Post page: Blog. Saved changes.
Got to the homepage and i just saw my homepage. No posts up there.
What am i missing here?
