This is a small section to configure, but if you want to enable the main content of the front page like a normal page, you can. Simply create a page, add some content to it, then assign the “Front Page” template from the “Page Attributes” meta box in the right column of the page editor.
Front Page Settings
- Go to Appearance >> Customize >> Front Page >> Front Page Settings
- Show (enable) the main content area of the page
- Add an ID to the page if you plan to use one-page scrolling. You can use a number or a name.
- Adjust the top and bottom spacing (padding) for the main content area by entering in a number (for percent) or you can use the arrows to increase/decrease the value by hovering over the field
- Click “Save & Publish“
