WordPress static themes (5 posts)

    Hello there,

    I want to build a very basic yet stylish static site for my business incorporating just the usual home page, about us, contact etc. I have looked through many WordPress themes but they all appear to be blog orientated. Are there any wordpress themes directly suitable for static sites available, in other words, WordPress static themes?

    I have heard that you can make changes to WordPress blog orientated themes but is there a step-by-step guide to this process anywhere? I am new to web design so the simpler the guide the better.

    Thanks in advance

    You can use almost any WordPress theme to run a static site simply by:

    - publishing Pages instead of Posts
    - setting your site's front page to be a static page rather than a post's page

    Sorry? How many do you want? There are currently more than 850 themes in the WordPress Themes directory and probably twice as many (if not more) elsewhere.
