    I just got my blog created and am learning WP. I am trying to 'lock' a post from my former site to to be the home page of the new blog.

    http://www.swindledforjesus.com is the old site
    http://www.swindledforjesus.com/blog/ is the new blog.

    Can anyone tell me how I can lock the current post for good?

    thanks,

    Dean

    I am not entirely sure what do you mean by "locking"... I guess you want to keep it as a frontpage.

    Here is what you should do:
    Copy that whole post's content and keep it somewhere - a Notepad text file? - till the next step
    Delete the post
    Create 2 new Pages in Write > Page; call them Home and Posts
    Paste the content saved above into the Home; leave Posts empty
    go admin > Settings > Reading and select
    Front page displays > frontpage = Home
    posts page = Posts

    On your example.com/blog address only the content of the Home should appear.
    Note. Your blogposts would be visible only at example.com/blog/posts
