is_home ›

is_home ( No parameters )
  • (bool) True if blog view homepage, otherwise false.
Defined at:

Determines whether the query is for the blog homepage.

The blog homepage is the page that shows the time-based blog content of the site.

is_home() is dependent on the site's "Front page displays" Reading Settings 'show_on_front' and 'page_for_posts'.

If a static page is set for the front page of the site, this function will return true only on the page you set as the "Posts page".

		return false;

	return $wp_query->is_home();
