WP help, I want to make the ‘home page’ a ‘single’

  • # January 3, 2010 at 2:25 pm

    Hey everyone,
    Is there a way to make the home page of my wordpress site resolve to my single.php template? I would like it to really be the single.php and to include the permalink the in the address bar.

    Maybe some type of forwarding?

    Make a special page template like page-home.php. Then make it exactly the same as your single.php file. Then publish a page from the Admin called "Homepage" using your new template. Then set that page to be your homepage in Settings > Reading.

    Thanks Chris!

    Using this method, would a guest who got a link to my url find that it is now suddenly being the most recent post permalink …

    That is really what I am aiming for.
