  • I need somebody help – not just anybody help!

    Someone here may have a better way, but I would:

    1. Create a new template file in your themes directory. (see http://www.binarymoon.co.uk/2007/06/wordpress-tips-and-tricks-custom-templates/)

    2. Create your new homepage as a page, and specify it to use the template you created in step 1.

    3. In the settings ‘reading’ section, select your new page as the a static front page.

    You can obviously muck about with the HTML of the page by just modifying the template file. Try to use standard wordpress tags if possible instead of hardcoding things like sitename, urls, paths etc.

    I hope this helps.

    Thank you. Will give it a look!

    Well – not so much…..WP is very new to me…..I am not even sure how to do #1…

    Create a new template file??
    Create your new homepage as a page??

    I went to the article you had a link to and it said,

    ..all you need to do is create a new template file (I tend to copy an existing page template) in your theme directory and add a small PHP comment to the top of the page. Once this is done the template will show up in the “page template” section of the write/ edit page screen.

    The code should look like…

    <?php /* Template Name: Name of template here
    */ ?>

    Copy an existing page template?? Which page should i even copy?

    The only part i understand is #3 in your instructions about choosing a static front page….

    SO SORRY for just not getting this!
