If you install a new WordPress website, you should see 2 pages (Sample Page and Privacy Policy ) has been installed in “Pages > All”. As we know, WordPress was originally designed as a blog system. The “Post” is for single blog post normally. The “Page” is usually for creating the Portfolio list, About, Info, Contact, Shop and etc. You need to pickup a Page as Front page of the website.

You can use either the WordPress default editor or the BM Content builder to create a page. Like:
