00:35

WordPress.org and ThemeForest have hundreds of great custom themes that you can use to create a beautiful site, but sometimes you need to customize the front page.

In this course, instructor Rachel McCollin will show you how to go from a plain homepage using the WordPress 2016 theme to a custom page with a slideshow, static content, a widget area, and custom loops. By the time you finish, you'll be able to create your own custom front page with WordPress template files!
