who can explain, why I don’t have home page but edit site is the main page, but not under pages

Hello, I just started to learn about WordPress, super confused. I created a “page”, I thought, from scratch with all kind of pre build blocks… then created few other separate pages for example about, blog, and contact. twenty twenty four theme.

I can see under pages: blog, contact, and about, but there is no where Home page… as I thought my main first created “page” supposed to be a Home page…. but under “edit site” there is my “template main page”

So why this “edit site” is not a created Home page, but hidden “main template page,” which is not under Pages or even navigation menu, it’s like a hidden secret “page” – did I do something wrong? Do I need to create real home page and link or copy my “main template page” to it? But then will it be redundant? Or then “edit site” will be home page? or still “main hidden page”?
Confused. thanks

  1. Dashboard > Settings > Reading

    Use static page and set the homepage to the page you have created for the home page it does not matter what it is titled it will always use this page as the home page.

  2. Make a page titled home and choose the main template or home page template and save it. Assign it in the reading settings.
