    decahedralist.com is the URL

    I need to do 2 things:

    I want to have the homepage include the most recent, entire blog post and a link to readmore. No more small posts below the most recent post.
    I want the Blog link to link to the blog page. On the blog page I want to have 5 most recent, entire posts (not the shortened posts)

    Right now I went to  Settings > Reading and chose Static Homepage: Select, Posts Page: Blog



    StudioPress Support emailed me the code below to handle your first request re: the home page¬† – put it in functions.php, change the “5” to “1” and it should work (Settings -> Reading probably needs to be “Your latest posts”, not a static page.)

    add_action( 'pre_get_posts', 'child_change_home_query' );
    /** Changes the query on the home page*/
    function child_change_home_query( $query ) {
    if( $query->is_main_query() && $query->is_home() ) {
    $query->set( 'posts_per_page', '5' ); //change this value to match the posts per page value you wish to show on the home page
