    First of all, here is the URL to my webpage for reference: http://www.enviropro.biz
    Ok, I am trying to have my home page display only a welcome post without it also displaying posts from my default post category being 'Water Damage' in this case. I would like the Water Damage page to also display a single post pertaining to water damages of course. Is there a way to have these two pages display different content? I've done a lot of research and even tried lines of code to remove posts from specific pages. I even played around with limiting the number of posts per page and the 'Front page displays' setting under the Reading tab in settings. Any ideas?

    Update: I've solved this issue after 2 days of near none stop efforts and have this to say, "Crap!" It was merely two wordpress plugins that allowed me to do this. I was editing code left and right, being that I am very new to this, with no luck. I first uploaded and activated this plugin: 'Front Page Excluded Categories' found here; http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/front-page-excluded-categories/ I then uploaded and installed this plugin: 'Page Link Manager' found here; http://gmurphey.com/2006/10/05/wordpress-plugin-page-link-manager/ . This second plugin allowed me to hide the page from the navigation. The page I am speaking of is the static page that I have set up for the front page to display.

    In a nut shell, I was able to display a different front page than default post category without displaying newly created posts and without having my default post category display the content on my front page. My URL is http://www.Enviropro.biz if you guys want to see what I am talking about.
