Can this be done in WordPress? – New Site

    Hi,

    I’d like to make a new site. I found a wordpress template that I like, but the homepage is the blog. I figure that I can keep the design for the homepage, but I don’t want the blog to be home page. I want the blog to be a link from the homepage.

    Before I install wordpress and the template, can some tell me how I can tailor a wordpress blog so that the blog isn’t the index page, but the index page uses the same template as the blog? If so, how?

    Thanks for the help!
    Ken

    Create a WordPress “Page” that will be your home page. In settings, you can tell WP to use a specific page as your home page. Use widgets to drop in the latest X number of posts (it will display them in a list of clickable titles). Or you can create a certain category and tell WP to pull the latest X number of posts from that category (I usually use just one) and plop that on the front page. Or simplest yet use the feed widget to pull in the latest X number of entries from the blog.

    Make sense?

    Okay, I created another page as my homepage, but now I have this page listed twice. Once as “Contact” and the other as “Home”.

    Any idea how to just have 1 link to this page?

    Also would there be a way to remove the post date and post title part for the non-blog pages?

    The blog is http://nyc-financial-planner.com/

    Thanks!
