    Good Morning,
    How do I prevent any of the blog posts from showing on the landing page? I
    am using a Minimum theme and I have replaced the featured image with a
    slider. In other words, I want the blog to be accessed through the menu
    only. I’m playing with ideas on





    This can be done by creating a static page in WordPress.  The documentation can be found here;

    I hope this helps or points you in the right direction.




    I have the same problem: the Minimum theme only seems to display the featured image, if the reading settings are set to “latest posts”. How would I add static content to my home page?

    Thanks, Beeke




    If you have selected ‘latest posts’, then WordPress will display the latest posts. The link above will describe how to create a static home page and display your latest posts on a blog page.

    Is this what you are attempting?



    No, I don’t want to show any posts at all. Infact I am not even sure, I will write a blog post at all… I would like to have my homepage setup with a large featured image or slider and some static content. I filed a ticket last night, because I couldn’t get my featured image to show, and it turned out that this was because I had  my page setup to show a static front page. When I turned it back to latest post, the image came right up.

    My domain is, if that helps…?



    Hi Beeke,You need to remove the Blog Post loop from home.php file.Remove this code

    add_action( ‘genesis_loop’, ‘minimum_grid_loop_helper’ );
    function minimum_grid_loop_helper() {

    if ( function_exists( ‘genesis_grid_loop’ ) ) {
    genesis_grid_loop( array(
    ‘features’ => 0,
    ‘feature_image_size’ => ‘featured’,
    ‘feature_image_class’ => ‘post-image’,
    ‘feature_content_limit’ => 0,
    ‘grid_image_size’ => 0,
    ‘grid_image_class’ => ‘alignnone’,
    ‘grid_content_limit’ => 250,
    ‘more’ => __( ‘[Read more]’, ‘minimum’ ),
    ) );
    } else {

    Thank you so much Vivek! That really worked. I think I had to remove one additional brace, but now it’s gone.

    Found this elsewhere in the forums and it did the job brilliantly. With this, you can either limit your posts on the frontpage to anything 0 or higher.

    /** Change the number of posts on homepage */
    add_action( ‘pre_get_posts’, ‘minimum_home_posts’ );
    function minimum_home_posts( $query ) {
    if( $query->is_main_query() && !is_admin() && is_home () ) {
    $query->set( ‘posts_per_page’, ‘2’ ); // change this number to reflect the limits you want to impose
