I want to use WP to create an informational web site instead of a blog because I like the way I can easily add content, create categories etc. But there are a few basic things I need in order to do this.
1) I need a home page that will have content that allways stays there like a static page. Now if I add content as a post it will get lost after I add other posts since I would normally want newer posts to show first.
2) I would like the ability to have the option to post without having the date, time and 'filed under' data showing at the begining of the post. These types of posts would be used to display content that look like a regular web page. An example of this might be an FAQ page. (Note: I still want to be able to have some posts created as normal such that users can respond).
If anyone can show me how to do this easily I would really appreciate it. BTW - i am not a programmer so hopefully this will not involve programming!
