    Ok, heres the deal.
    I have mysite.com and subdomain.mysite.com
    And i want to create splash/intro page on mysite.com so people can choose where to go when they type mysite.com
    Like this page for ex: jelizalde.com
    But i have wordpess.
    My current Home page is mysite.com as it is by default.
    I want to change Home to be mysite.com/home so i can make intro page to be at mysite.com
    I also want Welcome page next to Home page in my header, but Welcome page to be mysite.com, so Welcome page actually will be an intro page which will load when you type mysite.com
    How to make this work?

    I created a Splash Page here.

    It is uses front-page.php (below) in a twentyeleven Child Theme, has a Page named Welcome, which is the 'home' page ...it uses js to redirect after 10 seconds (to Welcome), provides a simple logo and a button to go right away to site:

    <?php
    
    /**
    
     * Template Name: Splash Template

     * @package WordPress
    
     * @subpackage Twenty_Eleven
    
     * @since Twenty Eleven 1.0
    
     */
    
    ?>

    This level of coding/design is really beyond the scope of the support we are able to provide in the forum, as it requires custom code to be written and tested. If you have a specific question, we may be able to help but we cannot design an entire page for you.
