By default, after a fresh installation of CONJ theme, WordPress displays a list of posts on the home page of your site. This list of posts is automatically updated as soon as new posts are published, therefore this page is not static.

There are various reasons why people desire to have a static page as their homepage. These types of homepages can display a landing page, a portfolio, a marketplace, or many other possibilities. WordPress is set up in such a way that by default the front page displays the latest posts from your blog. Having a static page is a feature that will be useful for those who desire to keep their blog in a separate location within their site.
