    Making a link for my wordpress front page?

    I'm building a wordpress theme for my website. I notice that in the dashboard's reading options, my front page displays my latests post which is exactly what i want. I want that to be my homepage. How do i offer my wordpress website users the option to go to the homepage?

    I'm asking this because this is the template tag that i used to list my pages:

    PHP Code:
    <div id="nav">
          <ul>
               <?php wp_list_pages('title_li='); ?>
          </ul>
    </div><!-- end of div with id nav -->
    Now after adding this, i notice that i have an About page. I want to create a page called Home (and make it my front page that displays my latests posts), just like sitepoint's .

    How do i do that? I know how to create pages but how do i make that the page that opens up when people go to the url and how do i make that homepage display the latests posts?

    Thank you all for reading this.
    Cheers,

    Create a PAGE called Home.

    Then go to Settings > Reading > Front page displays

    Choose;

    A static page (select below)
    * Front page: (choose Home)

    Save Changes.

    Done.

    But will doing what you advised me to do allow all my new posts to appear on that home page you've advised me to create?
