Basically I want to create a landing screen for my WordPress blog that is four big boxes: one leads to the blog, on to an external site, etc.
I was thinking of creating my own index.html landing page and the blog being available by website.com/blog (currently the .com goes straight to the blog). I've read this: http://codex.wordpress.org/Moving_WordPress and it sounds like a risky job.
There must be an easier way. I've seen 1 or 2 landing page plugins but unsure if that's what I want. I want the landing page to look nothing like the actual blog btw (no header, sidebar)
