Change the start page in theme "pool" (3 posts)

    I would like to change the start page (currently "blog" ) to a static page "A" so the first tab is "A" an introduction, followed by subsequent static pages "b", "c" etc. I would then like to have "Blog" as the last tab. The example is here http://www.sibaya.com/prototype/.

    I guess (novice) that I would have to edit the index file but am unsure if this is correct and how to do it.

    Any help much appreciated, Thanks.

    Okay, without looking at the template file for this, it looks like "blog" is already your "home page". A, B, and C are setup to be Pages. Just put titles in those Pages and they will show up as they should.

    Do you know how to do that?

    From the Administration Panels, choose MANAGE > PAGES and then select A, B, or C and choose EDIT. Change the names and add your information.

    I think that's it.

    It should show up automatically. Make sure that whatever you want in A is in A and B is in B and it will take care of itself.

    If you want the Blog as the last tag, you can change it, depending upon how the template tag information is listed in the header.php template file. But normally, it is the first one on the list, so be careful breaking convention.

    Lorelle, many thanks. Now, I want "A" (just some static welcome message) to be the first tab - my "Home" page - with a standard page format. I would like the "Blog" tab to be my last page - with a blog page format.

    Here is part of the code of my header.php

    </head>

    <body>
    <div id="content">

    <div id="header" onclick="location.href='<?php echo get_settings('home'); ?>';" style="cursor: pointer;">
    <h1>"><?php bloginfo('name'); ?></h1>
    </div>

    <div id="pages">
    <div class="alignleft">

    • ">Blog
    • <?php wp_list_pages('title_li='); ?>

    </div>

    <div id="search">
    <form id="searchform" method="get" action="<?php echo $_SERVER['PHP_SELF']; ?>">
    <input type="text" name="s" id="s" size="20" value="search in blog..." />
    </form>
    </div>
    </div>

    <!-- end header -->

    I can figure out how to change the word blog but dont know how to change the page to a standard page.

    Am I making sense ?... many thanks
