front page will not display recent articles (using Drupal 8.5)

I cannot get the recent article I made to show on my front page. I went into "configuration" > "basic settings" and ensured the default front page did not have anything after "8888." I saved it and now when I try to go to the home page, it shows this url in the browser:

http://localhost:8888/user/1

It also has my username as the headline with a line of text in the body stating: "Member for 5 hours and 6 mins"

Drupal 8 changed the path to the default front page from leaving the field blank to /node. For more information see: https://www.drupal.org/project/empty_front_page

Go to configuration > Basic Site Settings and set the default front page field to /node
