Sorry for being such a newb :)
Trying to use WordPress to set up a home page (and then a web site) for my wife's small business. At this point, just trying to be very basic and use WordPress to edit/create a simple home page.
I was able to set up a "static" page, and change the "permalink" to the root.
However when I view the page (containing simple text "TEST OF MY HOME PAGE"), I see the page within the blog theme. I try to see how/where to 'unselect" the theme, but no luck...
I suspect I need to go in and edit the theme code... but don't really want to learn all that. Go Daddy help says to just create an index.html file and upload, but I can't see where/how to do that in WordPress.
So... can I use WordPress to do what I want without having to do massive editting of their blog themes? If so, is there a tutorial somewhere that would help me? If not, what web development tool do you recommend?
