Exclude blog posts from front page

    Is there a way to exclude (new) blog posts from appearing on the Front/Presentation page?
    My site presents activities in the area, ordered by date happening, and to show other news, I added a blog/news page.
    But every time I publish a new blog post, it also appears on the front page, which is exactly where I don’t want to show it.
    My current work-around: with a plugin I order them so far down that the presentation-page does pick them up, but that is rather intensive labor.

    You can use a plugin like this one (I am not sure if it still works with the latest WordPress releases) or exclude an entire category from the homepage.

    Tried the plugin already; it doesn’t work appropriately.
    The instructions to edit the functions.php work fine!
    Will they be overruled by a theme-update?

    NB. You need to put your blog-posts in a specific category, obviously.

    Thanks for your help.

    If you’re modifying theme files directly, yes, such changes would be lost on every update.

    You should include code customizations in a child theme or a plugin even.
