WordPress Themes for Websites – Not for Blogs

I have got to mention this as I have spent a few days now trying to find where the WordPress themes are for websites, not for blogs. It seems I am not the only one as there are popular search threads in Google such as ‘WordPress themes non blog’, ‘WordPress website themes not blog’ and many others.

Here is the answer that took me days to work out. Choose any WordPress theme, but choose to display it as a static page , rather than in a blog style post. There are not two different types of themes.

This is how to display a WordPress website style page rather than a blog for WordPress version 3.0:

Log in to your WordPress account. If you don’t know how to, go to your website and add /wp-admin at the end.

Example: mywordpress.com/wp-admin

Here you will be presented with the log in panel. Enter your username and password and you should arrive at the Dashboard.

In the left hand menu, down at the bottom, click on ‘Settings’. Then select ‘Reading’. Front page displays – and here are your two options – ‘your latest posts’ or ‘a static page’.  Click on ‘help’ at the top right of the page if you need any.

I hope this post prevents someone wasting many days and hours of trying to find the WordPress themes that are designed for websites, not for blogs.

    Hi there,

    Thanks for the info. I too struggled with this problem of where the WordPress website themes are. Hopefully I will need to search no more and can make use of the many blog themes out there for my next WordPress website.
