Mini Guide

Step 13 Reading WordPress Settings

Make changes to WordPress Reading Settings.

Go to  Dashboard → Settings → Reading.

  1. Your homepage displays
    Select A static page and select the temporary home page you created earlier in the drop-down.
  2. For each post in a feed, include
    Set to Excerpt
  3. Search engine visibility
    Check the box Discourage search engines from indexing this site.  
  4. Save Changes

More Information

Select the home page you created earlier to be the homepage.  You will eventually fully design your home page in Oxygen, so please do not worry that it still looks like pants.

By setting excerpts in feeds you make it slightly less convenient for people to steal your content (although they still can do so by other methods). 

You should set the search engine visibility to off to try to prevent your site from being indexed, before you are ready for it to be indexed.
