    Hello,

    Basic question here I'm sure.

    I am using the Manifest Theme ( http://jimbarraud.com/2009/03/19/manifest/ ) and would like to have people land on a "HOME" page rather than the blog. How do I accomplish that?

    Thanks for any help you can give,
    Tom

    Charity Skydive,

    That has me 90% there! I have followed the instructions, created the two pages and changed the setting in settings>reading panel. My static page works fine ... my blog page gives me this
    ________________________________________________
    Index of /blog

    Parent Directory
    Apache Server at http://www.tombegasse.com Port 80
    ________________________________________________

    Am I missing something?
    Thanks for your help!
    Tom

    PS - I changed the name of the page and the permalink to /news and it works. Why would that be?

    If you using static page settings then you create blank page name what ever you want and use that as post page in settings reading static page.

    Sorry, tombegasse. I don't know why it's doing that. There are a few reserved words you can't use for template names but 'blog' isn't one of them.

    In theory, you've done everything right and the blog page should work! =/
