    I have set up a squeeze page and I started a blog post. I would like to make my static front page... my first blog post. I went to settings, reading, and when I choose my original squeeze page from the pull down menu, it makes the static front page my squeeze page? What am I doing wrong? I'm a total newbie at this...

    You are using a commercial theme. Commercial themes are not support here. Your support should come from Optimize Press.
