Hi, thanks for reading.
I'm creating a website in WordPress to advertise myself and my services. As such, a blog isn't really required and I'm only considering having one since I was advised to use WordPress to create and manage the website. Perhaps I'll do away with it, if I can.
So, I've specified that the homepage be a sort of general Welcome/About Me page, but if I'm to have a blog I want it to have a tab in the top navigation bar (I'm using the
vSlider2 theme), which when selected will show the most recent posts etc. like a normal blog homepage. How do I do that?
The other thing is, I don't want blog-type stuff (eg.
Blogroll etc.) to clog up the sidebar in the rest of the website (ie. my
Pages - About Me and so on). In fact all I want in my Pages sidebar is a Log In link, maybe some contact details and a Google Calendar if possible. I'm thinking I'll create a separate template file for this sidebar, but I don't know how to call that in PHP, or if there's an easier, simpler way of doing that. How do I do that?
Thanks for responding!
