Now I've got that off my chest, here's the start of your step-by-step guide to creating your site. The first thing we need to do is to create the page that's going to be your home page.
I'm assuming you have WordPress installed somewhere and that you can log in to the Dashboard. I'm also assuming you are using one of the default themes -- if that doesn't mean anything to you, then you are.
First we'll do some configuring of your WP installation.
Go to Dashboard --> Settings --> Permalinks
Under 'Custom Settings' choose just about anything other than the default. I usually choose 'Month and Name'.
Under 'Optional' enter a category base and a tag base. I usually use 'category' and 'tag' respectively, but you can use anything.
Save your changes.
Go to Dashboard --> Pages --> Add New
On the New Page page, give your page a title (it can be anything you like and doesn't have to be 'Home') and enter some text for the page. It can be anything you like for now. And we'll not worry about images yet. We can sort those out later.
Now click, 'Screen Options' at top right. In the panel that opens up, check 'Discussion'. Now scroll down to just below the editor pane. You will see two checkboxes labelled 'Allow comments' and 'Allow trackbacks...'. If you don't want your users to be able to comment on your home page, make sure the 'Allow comments' checkbox is unchecked.
Click on the 'Publish' button and wait for the page to save.
You've now created your first page. Since you're using the default theme and the default menu, still, if you go back to your site you will see the title of your page on the navigation menu bar. You can click on it and you will be taken to the page you wrote. If you called your page, 'Home' you will see the word 'Home' twice on the menu bar. The first one will take you to a list of posts, the second will take you to your page. Don't worry about this. We're going to change it all later. The important thing is that you have a page up and running and accessible.
When you've finished all that, post back here and we'll move on to the next step. If you're worried about conducting what promises to be a long conversation via this forum (not sure of the rules on this...), feel free to contact me on peredur (at) peredur (dot) net.
