[resolved] Hide blog/posts, show only pages (6 posts)

    Hi,

    I have fought hard with wordpress & managed everything - but this:

    How can I hide the first item in the menu in TwentyEleven (that is, the posts) and show just a page instead.

    Right, for the time being, I do not wish to use my site as a blog but have pages only.

    The trouble with the current state is that the heading of the post changes color when you hover & that there is a hyperlink when you click on it (I may just as well change that and keep the one post as a token first page).

    Thanks!

    Do not edit the Twenty Eleven theme. It is the default WordPress theme and having access to an unedited version of the theme is vital when dealing with a range of site issues. First create a child theme for your changes.

    Thanks, I am already working on a child theme.

    You can set your home page to a static page in Settings->Reading. Set the front page to whatever page you want to display as your landing page. Create a blank page and point your posts to that. In theory if you don't want people to be able to get to the blog at all you can remove the blog/posts page link from the menu in Appearance->Menus. Other than that I don't see a way to do what you're attempting without modifying the theme code.

    That's amazing! I have spent hours to figure some things out on my own, and now I get your responses within minutes.

    So if you don't mind to help me out some more ...

    I used an image of my email adress to prevent spamming. But now I have two problems with that solution
    1) people can click on it (because they think it's a hyperlink) and then it opens - I would like to prevent the file from opening
    2) there is a small frame around it (which is not originally in the jpeg file I have uploaded)

    Any solution for that?

    I have asked that question in a new post as it concerns another topic. Thanks for your help on my first issue!
