I'd like to have a static front page to avoid having the latest posts on the front page.
I have evaluated Static Front Page, but however there is one issue:
Q: I want a static front page and a normal blog (...)
A: Create a category called 'Blog', make it the default category, and put every post in it
I still want to use categories in a normal manner, therefore this plugin isn't a solution for me.
Therefore, I have thought about using .htaccess on Apache server.
E.g. the static page is located at "http://www.blog.com/home/". One could use e.g.
Redirect / http://www.blog.com/home/
But this one causes an error. Do you have an idea of such .htaccess rule to change "http://www.blog.com/" to "http://www.blog.com/home/" but to NOT change urls like "http://www.blog.com/about/" or "http://www.blog.com/feed/" etc. ?
Many thanks in advance.
