    I'm just starting here. I have a blog that works pretty much the way I want it to. But I would like to turn my static pages, HTML, CSS, which reside in another folder into WP content. Do I make a child theme based on the blog I now have working? I'm confused. I don't seem to be able to get the information when I google, or at WordPress.org.

    Any suggestions?

    If the other pages do not look like your design, yes you would have to, but if you are just wanting the content, click on "Add New" under Pages to add the content.

    The other pages do not,except color and background look like the blog. When I make the 'new' pages, do I need another data base? This is where I'm totally confused. I want to make a 'home' page with a link to the blog, I don't know how to resolve the 'index' issue. I don't know if I'm even making sense.

    Thanks for your reply . . .

    Okay, I gotcha (I think).

    In the theme folder itself, you have index.php which handles the blog. But you also have page.php while handles (of course) the page layouts. The nice thing about WordPress theming is that each section of the site (Header, Body, Footer, Sidebar, etc) are chopped up in different files and you can reuse those same files or not. (Think different header to load pages, redundant, but an option.

    Right now when I load the static page http://moderntimes.com I'm directed to the home 'index.html' page. Can I do this if 'index.php' resides in the same folder as 'index.html', I think that's what I'm having a problem with.

    Thanks . . .

    The browser will load one or the other. If it only loads index.php you will have to specify to load index.html
