As you create content nodes in Drupal 8 each node is saved and can be accessed individually. If you wish, you can have content display on the first page of your Drupal site. This is done via the Drupal 9 admin interface. Promoting content to the first page will display the node title and the first portion of the content. Below are the instructions for promoting a node to display on the front page of your Drupal 8 site.
