static "inner" pages (8 posts)

    I made a family tree page (regular html, not wp-php), and I want to include it in my site, but I can't figure out how to have wp add it.
    I've read Getting Started, Pages, wp_list_pages, and generally been linked back again. I've read about static "front" pages (mine is somewhere inside). Does someone have any concise tips for this?

    From the codex:
    "Pages are not files. They are stored in your database just like Posts are."
    (so maybe it's impossible?)

    Thats what I have been trying to figure out. I want static pages that when my nav links under header image are clicked on, the static pages show up. I havent figured it out and still trying. If you find a way to do this, please post it.

    On several installs I have done I simply created a page and used html to make the title clickable. Leave the page blank.
    The header image link will then take you to your static page uri.

    Yeah, but then I am stuck with a page id #... which I dont want. I just want a page that I can post basic info on without it at the end saying edit entry or treating it like a blog entry

    samboll,
    "I simply created a page and used html to make the title clickable. Leave the page blank.

    Do you mean it's sort of a jump-page to the static html page?

    If you're not worried about WP styling - just upload your page and link to it from your WP site... in the sidebar, header, wherever you want.

    If it's WP styling you want, then copy the HTML code into a PAGE and enter it in the "HTML" popup (if you're using the rich-text editor) or right in the window (if you're using the plain text editor) and save it. Then, if you must, use a temporary redirect from the old page to the new one.

    Where all this concern over "the URL" and what it is just boggles my mind. There is little or no value placed on URLs anymore as far as the search engines are concerned, and redirects will take care of any bookmarks people are using.

    "Do you mean it's sort of a jump-page to the static html page?"

    Exactly - except no one sees the page - they just go straight to the static page. The only place you have a page ID is in admin.

    On more than one blog - I have a link in the header going to completely different sites on different servers just by using html mark up in a page title.

    added in edit***

    Example:
    Page Title: <a href="http://www.weirdos.com/">Weirdos Site</a>

    To get this:
    Page Title: Weirdos Site

    When the "title" is clicked on in the header (or sidebar) the user goes to that link.

    I just made pages with no titles and excluded them from the sidebar so they wouldnt show up there. I then went into my header.php file and created/modified my nav links to direct to those created pages using the slug name I gave them
