Rather than displaying a blog feed on your index page, you may want to use a different page template. To set a custom Front page, be sure to follow these steps:

  1. Navigate to SettingsReading;
  2. Choose A static page from the Front page displays option;
  3. Set the Front page to your desired page.


The Posts page you select will display your blog feed.

If you need more help setting a custom Front page, please read through this Static front page documentation.
