Making a Static Home Page That does not say "home" on it (4 posts)

    I have the latest version of WP, 2.9.2. I am trying to make a static home page on a blog and then a link to "posts" that will show in the nav bar.

    I did make the static page, but it says "Home" and I don't want it to. And the "posts" show on an archive page instead a bloggish looking page.

    This site is supposed to function more like a website than a blog and I want to be able to give it that feel without making a website. I am using WP-ellie as the theme.

    I looked at this tutorial http://codex.wordpress.org/FAQ_Working_with_WordPress#How_can_I_have_a_static_front_page_and_posts_display_on_a_page_called_Blog.3F , but I guess I am not understanding it correctly. I don't get the myfrontpage.php part.

    The site I am trying to customize is here http://ckimagesphotography.net/

    Can anyone help me?

    This is using the page template, so open up page.php in your theme directory and look for this:
    <h1 class="page-title"><?php the_title(); ?></h1>

    If you want to remove the title from all pages, just delete this and save the file. If you only want to hide the title on the home page, replace that line with this:

    <?php if(!is_home()): ?>
    <h1 class="page-title"><?php the_title(); ?></h1>
    <?php endif; ?>

    You can do something similar around the breadcrumbs.

    THANK YOU!! I will give it a try.

    Are there any tutorials that you know of to make the "blog" archive page look more like the real blog page?
