    hello

    im wondering if this is possible

    i want to use wordpress as a CMS with a blog aswell, i want the front page to act as a blog but without comments etc, i want to make posts on there displaying date and i want to make the posts through the admin panel

    and i want the blog with comments etc enabled to be on a seperate page, i know there are plugins and ways to have the home page as a static page but i dont want it to be static

    basically i want a seperate blog for each page but the home page does not have comments enabled its more of an updates page which is also updated through admin panel

    is this possible??

    There are a lot of ways you could do this, here is one of them:
    create a home page template where the posts do not have the comments form visible. Now, nobody can submit a comment on the home page.
    To do this, you'll need to understand the template hierarchy (of which there is ample documentation in the codex)

    i don't just want a normal wordpress page though, i want the homepage to have updates with dates etc on it like blog posts, but this is not the actual blog

    i want the blog on a separate page

    am i making any sense :p
