When I enter the short web address in the box in the upper left corner of my browser and rely on the search engines to find the full address, the website opens on the first post and not on the home page. What do I change to make it open on the home page.

Hi tsilloh, I am unsure what you mean about a "short web address"... are you referring to a 301 redirect you have your your long URL? If you are having a probably with it not showing your home page, you can go into your admin dashboard and navigate to Settings>Reading. There you will see a place to set the "static" page. Just use the drop down box to select the page you want to display as your "static" home page. Hope that helps!
