// you will need to create a new page in the dashboard and name it
// something like "Welcome" for example or any name you choose.
// This will be your landing page. Add content and media if you
// like and publish the page. Then go to Dashboard/Settings/Reading.
// Under "Front page displays" select "A static page." Then use the
// "Front page" dropdown menu to select your page. In my example for
// instance I selected "Welcome" for my front page. Done! Now logged
// out visitors get your landing page, and logged in users get
// directed to their profile.
