Static front page? (6 posts)

    I am trying to create a home page that only has a background image and the small nav bar at the top right of the site. I know i can just set the front page to be static, but then i would like all of the rest of my pages to look similar to my current front page. I'm not having much luck getting this to happen. Any help would be appreciated.

    Your theme looks a little weird, but have you tried looking at themes like Weaver II ( http://wordpress.org/extend/themes/weaver-ii ) the free ersion has so many options to play with and you can make it do a lot of different things. Take a peek at that one...hopefully that will help.

    There are two ways of doing this: You can go to Layout options and edit the look there like on this screen cap: http://imageshack.us/photo/my-images/43/layoutoptions.png/

    or

    Create a page and there should be a drop down & choose "No sidebars, one column content" option like on this screen shot: http://imageshack.us/photo/my-images/41/pagesettings.png then go to settings --> reading and make that new page you created your new static front page.

    Also you can choose to hide all sorts of things on each page or have certain things show etc on a per page or even per post basis. :-)

    Thanks got it. Well since you seem to know quite a bit hopefully you won't mind answering a more involved question. :)

    It is about password permissions. I need a login widget for the home page, that when a person logs in they are permitted to see only a few pages. There will be multiple users and they will all be able to see 2 or 3 of the same pages and then their own personal page which will be different for each of them. Possible in WP?
