I'm trying to create a new page. What I want to do is duplicate the main page of my blog, and on the duplicated page, instead of having the blog entries, it will have just static text. I still want it to have the sidebars and all (footer.php in my theme) and the header and everything, I just want it to not show the blog entries and instead show static text that I can edit inside of WP.
I have tried duplicated index.php and that has not worked, nor has duplicated pretty much every other page. There must be something that needs to be done otherwise.
Hope this is not too confusing. :)
