    I’m hoping you all can help me because I’m new to WordPress. I am creating a intranet site for my company. However my Home page is going to only be a pretty blank page with three large images that serve as Hyperlinks in order to quickly get my employees where they are looking to go (80% of purpose of this site) However the site will have other pages that are relevant to other company topics. Now I think I could crawl my way through these other pages however I can get the homepage to act right. I can’t for the life of me get rid of that Post section of the site. (I plan on using this in widgets to get relevant company information to employees on a sidebar or something out of the way. But this Post section is taking up the space where I want to put the hyperlinks and I don’t know how to remove it? It seems to be built in to every last theme I look at and I’m stumped.

  • create a front-page.php template in your theme with the code to show those ‘three large images that serve as Hyperlinks’;

    as you can see in http://codex.wordpress.org/Template_Hierarchy, this front-page.php will get used for the front page instead of the index template.

    Thanks alchymyth! I did that and entered my own HTML into the file instead to put the images with hyperlinks onto the home page. However this also moved the sidebar on the right not to start until under the images. Is there a way I can limit the HTML I wrote with the php so that it doesn’t effect that sidebar?

    what code you nedd to keep and what you can change, to keep for instance a sidebar, totally depends on your used theme.

    you will likely need to keep most of the existing html structure….

    Thanks alchymyth for all of the help. Actually all I ended up having to do was limit my table width to allow room for the sidebar and the sidebar just shifted back up into place.
