Home page

Pages>home
The home page should keep the title home for ease of navigation in the backend, despite the fact that this title does not show on the frontend. Likewise the content from the Home page does not appear on the front end. So there is no need to add any.
The content from the custom fields appears on the home page
Here there are fields for the following:

Pages and Posts – these are the building blocks of WordPress.

Pages – primarily serve the site’s static content and make up the bulk of the content in the Contact Us, Support Us and About US sections and are incorporated in several other sections as well.
Posts or post types – posts primarily serve the site’s dynamic content. There are Custom Post types which  along with standard posts serve the dynamic content and are described blow
All post types have associated feeds. The Feeds pull the title and associated links or downloads from the main content.

Custom Pages and blocks

Staff
 – This is a combination page which uses a custom block and some standard Gutenberg blocks .

The Attorneys block can be used to show Profiles of the Attorney role by region. You can use 1-3 columns for this.

Issues – Is a page that uses a custom block exclusively. Adding this block adds the featured image, description and a link to each of the categories/issues. There is another standard wordpress block that adds only links to the categories/issues pages.

Narf Blog – a special WordPress page that is set to show a feed of standard posts. On this site it is filterable.

Post Types and Custom Post Types

Posts –  are the standard WordPress post. Each post should be given a featured image and can be given categories/issues as well. They will be filterable by category/issue and date in the feed page. The NARF

Resources –  Each resource should be given a featured image, resource type and categories/issues. They will be filterable by type and categories/issues in the feed page.
