    I build for the first time :) a website with WP

    My issue is that in the WP editor the index.php page does not take html code
    and this is the page you see when you get on my site
    http://www.websofic.com
    to get onto the real home page you have to click on Home
    My question:
    How do I replace the index.php (in the wp editor is called main index template), with my
    http://www.websofic.com/home
    page?

    I hope that somebody can help me out!
    Thank you

    hmm sorry but I did read that and 100 other tips but it did not help me really.
    I just need to know how to get my real home page to load instead of the index.php
    Can you be so kind to be more specific to my case with your answer... I am not a pro ..

    otherwise thank you anyway.

    I tried to replace index.php from root with the one I would like to be loaded which is in the theme folder (also called index.php ) but did not work out
    so I am still lost
    how do I get WP to load the correct page?

    anybody out there that can help me without sending me to read more tutorials please?

    or do you know a forum where they can help non pro?

    many thanks

    Perhaps you need to look at Creating_a_Static_Front_Page?

    Hi Esmi,

    Are you the only one that can help on this forum or are you the only good samaritan? :)
    I think that if you have 2 minutes to understand my issue it would save time.

    If I create a new page it will end up in my menu, this is not what I want.
    when you get to my website root you get the page called
    Main Index template aka index.php

    which is NOT my home page
    also I am unable to change it really

    so the question remains:

    how to load my home page in the root directory
    please do not give me another link :)

    Ensure that your home page is called index.html and then add DirectoryIndex index.html index.htm index.php to the top of your root .htaccess file.
