    I recently downloaded the wp 1.5 and testing it out on my computer. I was just wondering whether it is possible to make a particular "page" as homepage - meaning, whatever one may be posting on the blog, instead of the recent posts showing up on the index page, only the particular user defined "page" shows up when one clicks on http://www.xyzexample.com/ Perhaps you can see my website for exactly what I mean.

    I think you could do this by adding another PHP page (say user-page.php) that is called by the index.php page. user-page.php would set which "Page" to display based on the user who is logged in.

    If the content is going to be fairly static on the homepage or if you don't mind updating it manually, just create an index.php template page that doesn't have the loop in it. You will have to create at least one template that DOES have the loop in it and assign it to your other pages and/or categories , however, or none of the pages/posts will pull content from the database.
