wordpress 2.1.3 installation, static homepage and its URL (6 posts)

    If I create homepage.php and assign it to be my home (static) page, how can I make it so that when readers go to http://www.mydomain.com the URL remains just that and does not display http://www.mydomain.com/homepage.php ?

    If this can't happen via wordpress admin area, can I make it happen using my .htaccess?

    Why do you need to create a physical file (=homepage.php) when the feature to set up a WP Page as your homepage is built in?

    I"m not going to - it *is* my intention to allow WP to make the home page with it's new functionality - I just thought that it was going to be displayed as /homepage.php because when I asked a different question in the forum here on how to do it, I was told to create homepage.php

    Maybe you can help me out here please

    It all depends on your WP version. Prior to 2.1 you had to create a file but not anymore.

    Just go Options > Reading and follow the instructions.
