    Dear WP Support Forum.

    I've installed and set my working wp blog on my root folder:


    I'd like my readers to be able to get to a custom page, rather than the index.php.

    For example http://www.mysite.com/home/

    Shell i just rename index.php to blog.php and create an index with a HomePage interface which give access to the wp BLOG?

    thanks.... i did as you suggest.

    now my blog and post are visible on http://www.mysite.com/blog, but if the readers link to just http://www.mysite.com they see an exact copy of page /blog

    how can i get the index to be different and don't display the actual blog postss?

    So, why don't you read again what was posted above (and zillion times in the forum)?
    admin > Settings > Reading and look around. You have 2 options:
    Frontpage displays -
    1. Your latest posts
    2. a static Page

    (NOTE! You can select only existing Pages, i.e. created in Write > Write Page before going to the Settings!!!)

    Now, if you select a Page as your frontpage the you MUST select another (empty) Page to display your posts, for example a Page that you created and named "Blog".

    I agree with you.

    I have created two differnt pages.

    One static page as front page

    and another empty page to show posts.

    both are wokring fine.

    but the problem is :

    "example.com" and "example.com/blog" both are same as I have set one static page as Front Page. If somebody opens example.com/blog/?page_id=17 then only he will able to see post lists like regular blog.

    please guide.
