I wish to modify my menu. My blog is currently on the homepage, and it has the flavor of WP. ;)

I'm setting up a blog on Joomla and want to display it as the homepage, similar to how we can choose a static page for the homepage or post page in WordPress.

I've successfully created a menu item for my blog category and set it as the default page. This works perfectly! However, I wondered if there's another way to achieve this, perhaps a more streamlined approach like WordPress.

Is there a way to set the Home and Post pages directly as A static page (select below) in Joomla without creating a menu item first?

Thanks in advance for any insights!

This does not make any sense to us. A Menu Item contains all the Options.

There is an Option in the Menu Item to not show it in the Menu if you wish.

Hi.

Tip: Do not try to transfer your experience from one CMS to another. They have different logic. Try to understand this logic from a clean leaf and with an unexplored consciousness. This will allow you to quickly master the new CMS.

Once, when after a long use of Joomla, I began to study WordPress, it was (wp static page) exactly option that seemed stupid and not optimal to me. And it was subjective thinking on my part. :D.

From the box Joomla has 2 main types of pages for content - category (and its various options) and article (item). You can use the article as a static page if you assign it to the menu item.
The choice of page type is carried out through the choice of menu item type.

Third-party components add their own types of menu items (page types).

For example, if you install SP Page Builder (similar to Elementor), you will get a new type of menu item and you can make beautiful pages
