is_front_page ›

is_front_page ( No parameters )
  • (bool) True, if front of site.
Defined at:

Determines whether the query is for the front page of the site.

This is for what is displayed at your site's main URL.

Depends on the site's "Front page displays" Reading Settings 'show_on_front' and 'page_on_front'.

If you set a static page for the front page of your site, this function will return true when viewing that page.

Otherwise the same as @see is_home()
