What is a custom front page?

By default, WordPress front pages display a dynamic list of your most recent posts; a custom front page can be set up to display static content of your choice instead. This can extend WordPress' functionality to create a look that is more suitable for commercial or professional sites. NextElement comes with two premade custom front pages for your use, but if you prefer you can always create your own by using shortcodes.
